An article from a multi-institution research team led by Center Assistant Professor Dr. Karen Kelly-Blake and Assistant Director Libby Bogdan-Lovis has been published in the September 2018 issue of Medical Education.
In “Rationales for expanding minority physician representation in the workforce: a scoping review,” the authors discuss “rationales for and approaches to expanding under‐represented minority (URM) physician representation in the medical workforce” found in their scoping review of fifteen years of literature.
The full text is available online via Wiley Online Library (MSU Library or other institutional access may be required to view this article).
Dr. Kelly-Blake and Libby Bogdan-Lovis further discussed their article in an interview for the Medical Education podcast series.
The authors suggest that the expanding emphasis on URM service commitment and patient–physician concordance benefits warrants ongoing scrutiny providing a cautionary tale of unintended consequences for medical educators globally https://t.co/ryvUWIzINf @msubioethics #MedEd
