The 1918 ban of Black medical students: Addressing our past discrimination to promote diversity in the future

Last fall, my understanding of the history of the Queen’s School of Medicine changed when I learned that, in 1918, we had put in place a policy to formally ban Black students. This policy was approved in a motion by the Queen’s Senate, and it was enforced until 1965.

Fighting bias against family medicine in the hidden curriculum

For some time now, those of us who work in medical education have been speaking about the “hidden curriculum.” The hidden curriculum refers to the many different things – ideas, behaviours, norms, values, and so on – that students learn informally while they are in medical school. These are the lessons that faculty members do not set out to explicitly teach students but that we pass on nonetheless.
