ATS SCHOLAR Call for Papers: Special Collection

ATS Scholar is planning a special, themed collection on combatting racism in health professions education. Relevant topics include, among others, teaching how to identify and interrupt microaggressions, curricula on health disparities, work on methods for diversifying incoming trainees, and tools for educators on how to reduce bias. ATS Scholar invites original research, review articles, innovations, and video submissions for consideration. View from the Learner Commentaries from students, residents, and fellows are also encouraged. If you have questions about whether a potential submission is a fit for this collection, please contact Nitin Seam, MD, editor-in-chief, ATS Scholar.

All submissions are due by Sept. 30, 2020, should conform to ATS Scholar’s formatting requirements, and should mention the special, themed collection at the beginning of the cover letter. View from the Learner Commentaries should include an identifying note in the cover letter as well. Authors with formatting questions should contact Jen Stinnett.
