This chapter offers advice about how to survive and thrive in medical school as a woman of color. Ejiogu recognizes the importance of finding support as a medical student committed to social justice principles and how to negotiate a profession that routinely is known for its mistreatment of nonwhite communities and women. She advocates anticipating potential triggers in an oppressive environment and the need to implement a self-care plan as a way to protect oneself.
