Abstract
The new catalogue of objectives for medical education at Swiss universities (PROFILES) underlines the importance of teaching the impact of ethnic, cultural, spiritual and religious differences and the socio-economic determinants of health and illness on health and care. At the same time, the social reality of the moment reminds us that racism is still present in our societies. Therefore, education for medical students is necessary. This should include basic knowledge but also, and above all, an understanding of the underlying mechanisms that will enable them to grasp the notions of prejudice, stereotypes and discrimination. Finally, introspection, the acquisition of cross-cultural skills and cultural humility will help to deal with this other epidemic.
