Brown Advocates for Social Change and Equity (BASCE) is a year-long program supported by the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs that seeks to develop healthcare leaders who have an aptitude and passion for engaging their peers in dialogue around issues of racism, cultural diversity, inclusion, social justice, and health equity.  

The vision [for BASCE] was to provide training to those who want to make antiracism work a central part of their careers in medicine.

The program builds a community of medical students, residents, and faculty who have been trained to facilitate cross-cultural activities and dialogues on race, unconscious bias, and health equity within our peer community and respective healthcare systems. The sessions focus on critical thinking and dialogue, mentoring, and active workshopping of a project.
