A culture of inclusiveness: Diversity matters in medical education
from By Jonathan Ryan Batson
In the world of medicine, many on various committees and boards still believe diversity is not an issue. They think that a few seats at the table means that somehow we have all arrived and that the system is equal. That view is not only morally profane, but also incompetent. It shows the lack of interest to go further and increase both physical bodies for diversity as well as the the cultural dynamics of diversity in their student body and full-time faculty. A diverse education is needed to improve cultural competency and social awareness of the communities that many hope to serve.
