This session will foster discussion amongst attendees regarding several critical topics in medical education about disability:
  • How physicians think about disability: Care vs. cure philosophies, conceptual models of disability, and implications for health outcomes
  • Physicians’ role in defining quality of life, disability, and function
  • Ableism at multiple levels of influence: How physicians contribute to the problem and how they can be a part of the solution
Hear perspectives from our team as well as from invited guests from multiple fields of medicine. Join us for a cross-disability, cross-medical specialty, cross-level of training call to action!
