WE NEED YOUR VOICE TO
PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY

OUR MISSION

It is time to speak up against broken healthcare systems that allow racism to flourish and harm our community, our dedicated students, and healthcare workers. You can help Project Diversify Medicine (PDM) document the harm of racism in medicine and advocate for equitable admissions practices, bias-free learning environments, and medical spaces. Most importantly, we want to create a centralized resource to help students and health professionals navigate the medical field safely. This information will be shared in our "Yellow Book" Travel guide (similar to the Green Book Travel guide) and released later. All information collected will remain anonymous unless you desire to disclose your personal information.

 

As you craft your story, consider:

  • Documenting harm or identifying progress, such as:

    • How systematic structures interfered or improved your ability to perform

    • The specific impact hospitals and institutions have had on med students, residents, and healthcare workers.

  • Sharing your perspective, for example

    • What drove you to get into medicine and if you experienced racism what happened when you reported it.

    • Does the college, medical school, residency program, or hospital system have a history of racism? What steps have been taken to address the matter?
