ARCH (Anti-Racism, Cultural Humility) Task Force

ARCH Task Force Mission

The Allina Health United Family Medicine Residency Program resolves to become a leader among residency programs in anti-racism by taking an anti-racism approach in our education, recruitment, and practice within the field of medicine and community health.

We will incorporate inclusivity, equity, and humanism in all decisions involving resident education and patient care. We will partner with the community in the delivery of our residency program.

ARCH Task Force Goals

Addressing patient experience, community partnerships, and workforce culture from an anti-racism framework.

Mentorship and recruitment of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) students, residents, and faculty to increase diversity in the medical profession and leadership.

Integrating anti-racism curriculum and discussions into resident learning.

Advocating for anti-racism policies and institutional reform.

ARCH Curriculum

Curriculum includes formal teaching with a critical eye to race-based medicine, discussion and active learning sessions every 5th Wednesday morning and during Didactic Workshops, and informal dialogue with our residents, faculty, staff and community through our ARCH Task Force and ARCH Book Club.
