Canadian Medical Association

The Black Physicians of Canada’s guide For Allies provides concrete examples of how you can help black physicians, learners, patients, colleagues, peers and trainees as an ally, through standing up when injustices occur, initiating dialogue and educating yourself. The resource provides further examples specifically for program directors of black residents and fellows on how to be an ally. These examples include erring on the side of your resident, promoting racial diversity and inclusion within the teaching faculty, and ensuring you and your staff are educated with regard to the role of systemic racism in both the medical profession and education. The guide concludes with examples of privilege, blatant discrimination, overt discrimination and subtle discrimination that can occur in the medical profession and education.
