Bias in Medicine

The project, Systemic Disease, wants to hear from you.

You, who doubted your specialty choice because of the sexual jokes made in the all-male operating room.

You, whose medical school interviewer asked, ‘Where are you from?’ because they did not believe your South Asian surname matched the U.S. city listed on your application.

You, whose professor mistook you for a maintenance staff worker for being a casually-dressed black man.

You, who have survived injustice as a casualty of this systemic disease of bias in medicine.

The project, Systemic Disease, collects narratives from health professional students across the country to build an online community of support and advocacy for change. We invite you to join the movement to combat this systemic disease, one story at a time.
