The highest quality health care is equitable, culturally safe and accessible for all. Unfortunately, we still have a lot of work to do to make this a reality — major organizations in Canada have declared racism a public health emergency.
Dr. Saleem Razack is a critical care physician and new investigator with BCCHR. He has a particular interest in how we teach about race and ways to increase opportunities to incorporate anti-racist practices in education for health professionals. He has investigated how equity, diversity, excellence and meritocracy impact the medical school admissions process, as well as how patients and their families can contribute to the pediatric critical care curriculum.
