Education/Training for Workforce

Breaking Down the Ivory Tower:
Building the Health Care Workforce America Needs

Tuesday, August 8th, 2023 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm ET


Event Description


The August 8th event will feature speakers who will challenge our audience to address academic elitism in health education, reimagining an educational system that supports all students and trainees as they learn to care for a diverse patient population. Within the context of the historical and contemporary forces that have shaped the current medical workforce landscape in the U.S., our speakers will elevate strategies for addressing the long-standing underrepresentation of historically excluded populations in clinical programs.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit will be offered at no cost to attendees.
