New Podcast Episode: As California Goes, So Goes the Nation: Dean’s Edition

We have just released a new episode of our podcast, and it's a conversation you won't want to miss!

In this episode, we dive deep into the importance of embracing disability as diversity in medical education. We had the privilege of speaking with Student Affairs Deans from California medical schools who shared their experiences and insights on this topic. 

They discussed the journey that led them to recognize the significance of disability as a diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice issue in medical education. Our guests also shared their experiences in implementing specialized support for students with disabilities, the challenges they faced, and the positive impact it has had on their medical schools. They discussed the strategic benefits, lessons learned, and how this specialized support aligns with their overall diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice efforts.

Throughout the episode, our guests emphasized the importance of creating an inclusive and supportive environment for all students, regardless of their disabilities. They highlighted the need for specialized support to ensure that students with disabilities can thrive and succeed in their medical education journey.

If you're interested in learning more about how medical schools are working towards creating a more inclusive and diverse environment, I highly recommend listening to this episode. You'll gain valuable insights and practical advice from these California leaders.
