Anti-Racism and Medicine

This guide is an introduction to resources on Anti-Racism and Medicine from the MCPHS University Library and other online sources.

What's on this page?

On this page you'll find anti-racism resources that focus on the medical field.  We have divided up our resources on this topic by format--on this page you can find books that we recommend from the MCPHS Library, as well as books to check out from your public library. 

Important Note

On this guide we have included some books that we recommend, but are not available at MCPHS.  For these resources, we have set up the links to redirect to the Boston Public Library, as many members of the MCPHS community are able to use their resources.  If you are not able to use the Boston Public Library, feel free to find these books at your own library!
