Beyond the Operating Room: Surgery & Social Justice

Dr. Rishi Rattan, a self-described "failed engineer," can tell you the precise moment he decided to become a surgeon - and it had nothing to do with being in the operating room. He shares how critical race theory, intersectionality, and social justice inform his practice as a trauma surgeon.

In a specialty where praise is a proxy for clinical acumen and surgical skills, Dr. Rattan also embodies that often overlooked quality that is of equal importance - humanity. Listen below or at Race, Violence & Medicine.
