Andrew Joseph Hogan, MA, PhD

Director, Science and Medicine in Society Program


Hogan’s research examines issues and initiatives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in post-WWII medicine and other clinical professions. He draws on professional newsletters and magazines, archival sources, and oral history interviews with clinicians and activists to explore the evolving ways in which clinical fields have described and conceptualized race, ethnicity, and disability among their students, practitioners, and patients. Amidst recent efforts by professions to increase their diversity, little attention has been given to the strategies, accomplishments, barriers, and shortcomings of past efforts to improve minority recruitment, retention, and inclusion. Hogan analyzes the ways in which clinical fields’ perceptions and assessments of competence and capability, along with forms of bias, discrimination, essentialism, and narrowly scientific ways of knowing, have been used and tolerated as modes of excluding racial/ethnic minorities and disabled people from careers in medicine and other health-related professions.
