Racism is a powerful force in the American healthcare system, manifesting as disparate population-level health outcomes, healthcare delivery metrics, and physician workforce statistics. As gatekeepers to the health professions, medical schools and their affiliated health systems must be responsible for setting standards for addressing racism in medicine.

In 2018, national organization White Coats for Black Lives released the inaugural Racial Justice Report Card, a tool that evaluated 15 metrics for racial justice across 10 academic medical centers.

This year, students have brought this initiative to the University of Rochester School of Medicine. In this brief Town Hall, we will present the official results of this year's report and, through small group reflection and discussion, begin to ask the questions: How does the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry measure up, and where do we go from here?
