Structural and interpersonal expressions of racism afflict health care, whether manifesting as social determinants of health, policies that create health disparities, or diagnostic algorithms that bias treatment decisions. Racism also underlies discriminatory mistreatment of students, trainees, and physicians and the underrepresentation of non-white identities in medicine. MedEdPORTAL invites submissions that work toward dismantling racism within our profession through training and education.
Telehealth is defined as the use of electronic communications technology to provide care at a distance, including patient portals, eConsults, video visits, and remote patient monitoring. As health systems increasingly use telehealth to provide care delivery, it is important to disseminate best practices across the field, promoting their integration into training and curricula across the continuum. MedEdPORTAL invites generalizable teaching and learning activities with a focus on telehealth education.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased unmet needs for access to effective care for mental health and substance use disorders. MedEdPORTAL seeks submissions from across the health professions of generalizable educational materials in a new collection to enable training and implementation of integrated behavioral health models, which blends medical care with care for mental health and substance use disorders in one setting.
