Doctors of Color and Microaggressions
A New York Times article
describes the microaggressions that doctors of color frequently experience in their daily practice. In a field dominated by white males, many minority physicians frequently hear comments from colleagues and patients questioning their credibility and undermining their authority. The article emphasizes the importance of raising awareness about this issue and what steps people can take towards eliminating conscious and unconscious bias. The positive impact of diversity in medicine on patient outcomes is also addressed.
