This book examines the role and the opportunity for EDI advancement as a requisite in medicine and healthcare, particularly in the context of the professional landscape as this directly affects care delivery.  It argues that physicians lacking the awareness and skills necessary to engage in an EDI-informed manner with members of their professional setting and patients cannot effectively deliver care. It also argues that physicians and other clinicians benignly unaware of their privilege cannot effectively deliver care. The book takes a multifaceted approach to EDI in medicine including the exploration of the physician experience of being othered within the profession. The goal is to engage readers in a more inclusive practice.
