'Although the focus of this syllabus is the history of anti-Blackness in American medicine, we are aware that many of the texts are not from historians of medicine. Those scholars’ insights, however, are invaluable to our dissertation research and theoretical approaches. The selection of texts here also reveals the gaps that remain between the histories of medicine and science and Black studies. Though this syllabus is certainly not exhaustive, it lays important groundwork for bridging this gap and illustrating that questions of race and racism should be central to studying the histories of medicine and science.'
To achieve racial equity in education not only do individuals’ mindsets need to be shifted to a more anti-racist ideology, but the institutions in which they work need to make profound anti-racist changes as well. Therefore, we revisit two sets of literature, research on anti-racism
and organizational change, to explore what actions and leadership attributes could foster actual institutional change for racial equity.

'As the emergency department (ED) is the “front door” of the hospital and the primary site by which most patients
access the health care system, issues of inequity are especially salient for emergency medicine (EM) practice.
Improving the health of ED patients, especially those who are stigmatized and disenfranchised, depends on
having emergency physicians that are cognizant and attentive to their needs in and out of the medical encounter.'
