|Beyond Flexner Alliance Fall 2022 Newsletter
The Flexner Report of 1910 transformed the landscape of medical education in America through changing the standards of medical schools. Its legacy of admissions, education, and research standards profoundly changed the medical profession: most notably, the findings led to the closure of most colleges that prioritized training learners who identified as Black, female, and in rural settings. The consequences of the report shaped inequities in health care workforce and the Beyond Flexner Alliance is committed to advancing social mission by acknowledging the history of workforce and training inequities within medicine and beyond. As our work continues to evolve, so do the needs of our allies and accomplices. We have some significant updates about our Alliance that will be coming later this Fall that we are excited to share. Until then, enjoy this newsletter and stay tuned to our channels to keep up to date on how you can join our efforts in advancing social mission in healthcare and health workforce equity!
