In the link above, Dr. Choo recounts her numerous experiences of racism as Caucasian patients refuse to receive treatment from her because of her race. It is very timely to discuss the issue of racism in the healthcare setting in an era where racism has inexplicably resurrected. As Dr. Choo narrated, it was extremely insulting and embarrassing yet she maintained professional decorum all throughout these incidents. For the MIMS community, has anyone experienced any form of racism during your shift?
