General Information
The University of Maryland medical school has engaged in the anti-racism movement by offering workshops and lectures on anti-racism, bias, DEI, and related topics. The Cultural Transformation Initiative was also enacted to continue training on bias and microaggressions. At this time, it does not appear to be the case that such training is required. However, see developments below:
