Implementation of Highly Realistic, Racially Inclusive Surgical Simulation Training Models for Medical Education

This intervention describes how the creation and integration of highly realistic, racially inclusive surgical training models in medical education promotes diversity, equity, and inclusivity in medical education. This scalable, simple, reproducible, and innovative approach addresses the longstanding disparities in surgical training and patient care and produces positive outcomes for medical students, physicians, patients, and the communities. It was accomplished through a unique collaboration between the College of Medicine and the College of the Arts at the University of Florida.
