Medical students from historically under-represented groups experience discrimination, isolation, and different expectations that negatively impact their training (Dyrbye, 2007). Moreover, physicians from under-represented groups often experience unique barriers and greater challenges in their work environments, e.g., less autonomy, which can lead to lower career satisfaction (Varkey, 2009). Addressing these inequities requires cultural change involving the entire academic enterprise (Silver, 2019).
