Abstract – Background

Disparity in health status and healthcare outcomes is widespread and well known. This holds true for Indigenous peoples in many settings including Australia and Hawaii. While multi‐factorial, there is increasing evidence of health practitioner contribution to this disparity. This research explored senior medical students’ clinical decision‐making processes.
