Year 1: Medical Reparations

Any events which were recorded can be watched at Past Events. Additional resources (recommended readings from campus forum speakers, additional works of campus forum speakers, and resources about the theme of Medical Reparations) can be found at the Medical Reparations resource page

Other initiatives and activities

Growth and Community

Our Steering Committee expanded to include eleven active members and our Advisory Council expanded to include six members. We established four Working Groups (Events, Curriculum, Research, and Community Outreach), each led by a faculty and student member of the Steering Committee. We have thus expanded to welcome thirty-two members across the working groups: these members include faculty, staff, and students at UCSF, and span across Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Graduate Division. A list of ongoing collaborations within UCSF and our community at-large can be found on our collaborations page. 

There are many ways to get involved, and we encourage you to get in touch with us, by joining the mailing list, joining a working group, or checking out the resources available on our website. 

Curriculum Initiatives

In addition to kicking-off and running our Teach-In series, the Curriculum Working Group has put together recommendations for UCSF School of Medicine’s Anti-Oppressive Curriculum, designed and submitted an Inquiry Immersion Elective for Spring 2022, and met with Structural Competency to discuss curricular consultancy models.

Research & Mentorship Initiatives

We launched a Research Mentorship Program to bring together mentors and trainees who are committed to research rectifying racial injustices. We matched mentees with mentors and began planning for our Fall Research Workshop in collaboration with Medical Cultures Lab, to produce workshops covering foundational theories and methodologies for conducting Anti-Racism Research.
