Portraying Social Identities
This resource was developed by students, in collaboration with faculty, in the MD Program, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, in response to concerns about how various social identities (i.e. gender, race, sexuality, etc.) are portrayed in our curriculum. Health disparities and epidemiological differences do exist between different groups in society, and should be addressed in medical education – this resource is designed to ensure that these discussions can occur in a sensitive and productive way. The attached tool is intended as a reference for medical educators when creating or delivering lectures, CBL cases, seminars, or other teaching and learning materials, and for students to use in their group learning environments and in clinical practice.
