An Introduction to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Curriculum

Free Webinar •  November 2, 2022 •  Noon (EST)  

Medical education aims to prepare professionals to deliver healthcare to their communities. Growing evidence highlights how various social and cultural factors negatively impact underrepresented groups' health status. There is a clear need for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within medical curriculums, but adoption is challenging. This complexity lies not only in DEI being an emerging field but also in the sociological and historical aspects we need to consider.

In this session, we aim to create a space for a discussion about DEI in all medical curricula, using the framework proposed by the DEI Bricks. The Medical Student Alliance for Global Education (MeSAGE) developed these bricks – a ScholarRx initiative focused on empowering student organizations to collaborate and develop educational content on relevant topics not currently covered in medical curriculum.

During this interactive session, you will learn how to:

  • List different approaches to introducing DEI in medical education
  • Reflect on challenges and opportunities to promoting DEI in your medical curriculum
  • Introduce the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Bricks framework

    Catarina Pais Rodrigues, MD

    Dr. Pais Rodrigues has been involved in curriculum development and the improvement of medical education for more than 7 years. As a student leader, she held different roles in pedagogical committees which required her to become well-acquainted with teaching and assessment methodologies, quality assurance mechanisms, and the challenges of curriculum implementation.

    Later, while working with the International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA), her focus turned to global health topics and curricular gaps in health professionals' education. Currently, at ScholarRx, Catarina's goal is to promote meaningful student engagement in projects and coordinate the development of educational content on global health matters.
