This podcast reviews Holistic Review and the impact of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Holistic Review is a process of evaluating an applicant as a “whole” with careful consideration of her/ his journey through personal experiences, attributes, and academic performance/ metrics, such that there is no disproportionate focus on only 1 factor. The applicant is valued as a person who will contribute to the mission of the program through teaching, learning, and practice. The impact of Diversity, Equity, and & Inclusion will help to decrease health inequities by building an improved workforce dedicated to social justice in medicine and fighting against systemic racism.

Learning Objectives
