Article:

Today we feature a special issue of The BMJ from February 2020 on racism and medicine. Twenty-eight investigation, editorial, feature, opinion, news, analysis, and career focus articles cover a wide range of clinical, professional, and organizational issues around race and medicine in the UK. An investigation by The BMJ found, for example, that “medical schools are failing to monitor racial harassment and abuse of ethnic minority students.”

We thank the editors for opening this full issue of The BMJ for two weeks so that readers can access all the articles, and particularly BMJ news editor Zosia Kmietowicz for her responsiveness to our request.
