Social Justice in Medical Education (SJME)
Neha Malhotra, Navin Kariyawasam, Lunan Zhao
Social Justice in Medical Education is a club that organizes workshops and speaker events, advocates for curriculum changes, and engages in community activism to promote medical students' understanding and involvement in social justice: a system of values, attitudes and behaviours that reflect the belief that all people deserve equitable treatment and freedom from oppression. We believe that medicine is a social institution and by advocating for and adopting an anti-oppressive approach in their practices, physicians can fight to minimize the oppression of marginalized identities.
