“Anti-Asian Discrimination and Burnout on Asian American Medical Students" 

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacted a mental toll on physicians. Asian American  healthcare providers have also experienced an alarming increase in racism and racially motivated violence since the start of the pandemic – Anti-Asian hate. Asian American medical students are an incredibly heterogenous population that are vulnerable to exposure to racially motivated violence in the clinical setting. This mixed-methods study will investigate the mental health of and the effect of racism on Asian American medical students.
