The AMA Code of Medical Ethics speaks to matters of equity in health care in guidance on physicians' ethical responsibilities to promote access to care, to avoid discriminating against or exploiting patients and research participants, to be prudent stewards of health care resources, and to allocate limited resources fairly, among others.

This 90-minute live educational activity will focus on identifying barriers to equity and explore concrete practices, tools, and resources that can help physicians translate the aspirational guidance of the Code into practical action that promotes equity in their interactions with patients and colleagues and across the health care institutions with which they are affiliated.
