This guide is an introduction to resources on Anti-Racism and Medicine from the MCPHS Libraries and other online sources. This is a living guide and we expect that the listed resources will continue to change, evolve, and expand.
If you don't find what you're looking for or have any questions, contact the library!
Comprehensive glossaries that contain important terminology.
On this guide we have included some resources 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 resources at your own library!

There are many other libraries that have created guides relating to anti-racism, anti-oppression, racial injustice, social justice, health disparities, health equity, and the medical field, and have demonstrated how these guides should be designed. This guide drew its main inspiration from Indiana University School of Medicine's Anti-Racism, Inequity, and Implicit Bias in Healthcare Guide, NYU Health Sciences Library's Race and Racism in Medicine Guide (created by Juliana Magro), and Kansas City University's Racism in Medicine Resources Guide.
