Spring 2021 Quarter Interprofessional Antiracism Course for Health Sciences Students

Register today for a unique 1-credit elective- UCONJ 647: Antiracism in Action for Healthcare Professionals. This interprofessional education course will provide health sciences students opportunity to reflect and build skills necessary to become an anti-racist health care professional. We will examine racism at the individual, institutional and societal level, and will provide opportunities for a diverse group of health professions to share ideas and perspectives about collective action.

By the end of the course, students will be able to:
1. Understand the historical context and current day perpetuation of racism within healthcare
2. Envision what an anti-racist healthcare space would look like
3. Develop our roles as healthcare workers in dismantling racism at the individual, organizational, and societal levels
4. Demonstrate skills needed to enact anti-racist practice within healthcare or healthcare-adjacent settings
5. Commit to the integration of anti-racism work within our lifelong learning and practice

The course is co-created by a diverse group of faculty and clinicians representing medicine, nursing, public health, pharmacy, social work and dentistry. E-mail Rachel Lazzar to get the add code (rlazzar@uw.edu).
