As part of the Race & Representation (R&R) Series, we are doing spotlights on vascular trainees and faculty that identify as racial/ethnic minorities underrepresented in medicine (URiM), who have been historically excluded from the field. We hope to amplify these voices as examples of the unique challenges faced by URiMs within vascular surgery and as a source of inspiration and mentorship.
In this episode, Imani talks with Dr. Keith Jones and discusses his experiences transitioning from an academic practice to running and building his private practice and his experiences within both practice environments. He discusses how he manages to deal with racism in and out of the hospital and his hopes for how medicine will change moving forward.
Dr. Keith Jones currently works in private practice in Sacramento, CA.
