This workshop may be added to your SAEM19 registration!


Through interactive sessions, panel discussions, standard didactic presentations, and group brainstorming, this workshop will provide a longitudinal curriculum towards diversity and inclusion, as well as broadcast and share best practices for improving attitudes and effecting change in regards to diversity. At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to effectively advocate for diversity in their institutions; serve as a sounding board for diversity issues that may occur in their institutions; and discuss initiatives that address the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) diversity accreditation standards.
