Abstract

Abstract:

Omitting topics such as the social determinants of health and the relationship between discrimination and allostatic load on individuals and communities conveys an implicit message about the health and health outcomes of people of color. Th is is an example of a hidden curriculum in health professions schools. Th is qualitative study includes the insights of 54 medical or nursing students belonging to groups underrepresented in the health professions. Th e students came from three academic health institutions and were asked about microaggressions they may have experienced as students. Th e data highlight participants' perceptions of curricular deficits and a hidden curriculum and indicate the need for curriculum reform in schools of nursing and schools of medicine.
