Abstract

This commentary in response to a case considers how merit and features of medical school applicants’ dossiers should be drawn upon in admissions processes to promote equity and inclusion in medicine. It is argued that medical schools should incentivize inclusion by redefining merit in their admissions goals and processes, promote meaningful inclusion, and show institutional leadership in addressing social justice.
