- The SOM has enlisted numerous resources for anti-racism. Furthermore, the school is working towards restructuring its admissions and curriculum. The program, Creating Leadership and Education to Address Racism, is also offered. See developments below:
The medical school’s Anti-Racist Admissions Working Group expanded the admissions committee to include under-represented groups and added a question to admissions applications on the “applicant’s experiences with racism to BUSM’s secondary application for entry in fall 2021.”
