A successful launch of the WUSM Understanding Systemic Racism curriculum

This fall 2022, Psychiatry residents began taking part in the newly developed WUSM Understanding Systemic Racism (USR) curriculum. The rollout of this curriculum occurred in partnership with Psychiatry Equity Champions and leaders from WUSM Office of DEI.  Psychiatry Fellows also took part in this curriculum today!

Involvement in this USR curriculum for all of our Psychiatry trainees will continue throughout the academic year. 

Our Department of Psychiatry is at the forefront of launching this new curriculum. In fact, we are one of the first departments at WUSM to implement this curriculum into a residency program. Seminars are being led by WUSM ODEI faculty leader, Dr. Jessica Pittman and also co-facilitated by Drs. Cavazos and Navsaria as part of their Equity Champion roles. Congratulations and thank you to all involved for the successful integration of this important new curriculum into our Psychiatry department!
