Win of the Week: Dr. Choo Talks Gender and Race Bias

Dr. Choo and Dr. Baig-Lewis discuss before the internal medicine program

Dr. Esther Choo, OHSU Emergency Medicine faculty and national thought-leader on issues of gender and racial bias in medicine dropped by our internal medicine program last week to deliver an extremely relevant Q&A session moderated by rising chief resident Dr. Shahana Baig-Lewis.

Dr. Esther Choo published (today!) a powerful perspective piece in the New England Journal of Medicine on a similar topic, bringing both her recent celebrity and substantial insight to bear against a problem affecting our society at large by declaring "Time's Up" for such problems in medicine.

We are fortunate to have a speaker with Dr. Choo's experience and voice on our hilltop, and we always glad to have her stop by and share with the IM residents!
