‘Whispers and shadows’: A critical review of the professional identity literature with respect to minority physicians

Professional identity formation (PIF) is a growing area of research in medical education. However, it is unclear whether the present research base is suitable for understanding PIF in physicians considered to be under‐represented in medicine (URM). This meta‐ethnography examined the qualitative PIF literature from 2012 to 2019 to assess its capacity to shine light on the experiences of minoritized physicians.
