Hi all! I'm currently working to develop the list of schools I'm applying to, and I wanted to know if anyone knew which schools had an inclusive curriculum. I know that many schools are making this effort, but I want to know about schools that have gone above and beyond in their care of underserved communities. Suggestions from any tier are welcome!

By inclusive, I'm referring to curricula that specifically touch on LGBTQ+ inclusive care, care for communities of color, classism in medical accessibility, etc. It's important to me that the medical school I attend covers these topics. I've been at the receiving end of healthcare inequity and microaggressions from medical personnel, and I don't want to continue this cycle of harm. Which schools have had particularly groundbreaking approaches to healthcare inequity? Please share any that come to mind!

My school!

This is a growing field in medical education, BTW. You also might have better luck asking in the MD student forum

The SDN LGBTQ forum might be a good place to ask questions: LGBTQ

Also, someone created a Reddit channel that includes reviews of all the medical schools: /r/PreHealthPride
