"The Unbearable Whiteness of Seeing (in Medicine): How Racist Legacy Structure Impacts the Core Clinical Art of Seeing Patients” by Alexa Miller

Event Information: This talk shares Alexa Miller’s research on clinical uncertainty: a critical crossroads for a clinician where their performance holds the potential either to yield the excellence of healing and discovery, or to entangle them with medicine’s systemic harm. After a brief overview of key challenges and opportunities of medical uncertainty, participants will engage in a visual-arts-based exercise that reveals key principles of excellence in clinical uncertainty. The final portion of the talk identifies key invisible influences that can sway performance in uncertainty, with a focus on the racism of the institutions in which we operate and the subjectivity of the white gaze to clinical pitfalls. Please join us to learn the basics of an observation-first approach to patients, recognize the infinite complexity of human dynamics, and how our core capacities as humans represent critical levers for equity in health..
