Date: 08/31/23

Closed captions are available.

Overview: In this webinar, the primary goal of the panel discussion is to analyze and address the far-reaching implications of the Supreme Court's decisions on racial diversity strategies within academic medicine. Panelists examine the impact on medical school admissions and extend the discussion to explore implications on faculty/staff diversity, leadership development, and training programs.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify race-conscious diversity strategies for faculty, trainees and students that need to be modified or re-evaluated in response to the Supreme Court's decision.
  • Address alternative diversity strategies that have proven effective at institutions prohibited from considering race by state constitutions or laws.
  • Identify other potential risk areas for diversity strategies in academic medicine beyond admissions.
