📝 Abstract

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded in 2020, 2 trainees at Tulane University were threatened by a gunman who said, “If you are Chinese or Japanese, I’m going to kill you.” 1 The debriefing organized by our community, students and alumni of the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), was “Zoom-bombed” with anonymous racist messages. While Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) medical trainees work as part of the pandemic response, we have needed to guard against more than respiratory droplets. AAPI trainees have also been subjected to waves of COVID-19-related harassment and violence across the country.
