Health Equity Collection
iCollaborative’s Health Equity Collection serves as the online destination for identifying, developing, and sharing resources to educate and engage medical students, resident trainees and faculty on health equity-related skills and concepts.
The AAMC recognizes that health and health care disparities arise from conditions in which people are born, live, work and age. These disparities are often persistent in certain populations such as racial/ethnic subgroups, the elderly, veterans, individuals from lower socioeconomic status backgrounds, persons with disabilities and LGBT and rural populations. While there is a vast amount of research aimed at identifying health inequities associated with these populations, the AAMC is committed to increasing the capacity of our member institutions to create the evidence-base for solutions to these health and healthcare gaps. To support these efforts, iCollaborative seeks best practices and continuing education focused on optimizing learners’ acquisition of the competencies and skills needed to provide comprehensive, equity-promoting care for these populations.
