The DWDI Initiative is thrilled to share a new resource from the Hasting Center


This Hastings Center issue brief offers strategic recommendations for medical educators and institutions to pursue in developing a more disability-conscious curriculum.


The issue brief is the product of a Hastings Center project that involved conversations with expert advisors (including many of our DocsWithDisabilities leaders).


The project was led by Dr. Liz Bowen, an assistant professor of bioethics and humanities at Upstate Medical University and a Hastings Center presidential scholar, and Erik Parens, a Hastings Center senior research scholar, with the support of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation


The recommendations are useful for faculty, administra­tors, curriculum committees, learners or other interested institu­tional groups. They outline a set of fundamental goals for educators and institutions to pursue in developing a more disability-conscious curriculum, identify some of the most common challenges that arise in the pursuit of each goal, and offer strategies for meeting those challenges.
