Workplace discrimination obstructs fairness and negatively impacts employee health, while policies that accommodate (i.e. support) worker identities foster respect and hospitality. Using Muslim physicians’ experiences as a case study, we will identify shortcomings concerning the accommodation of religious identity in general, and of Muslim practices in particular, within academic medical centers. These data will be used to suggest best practices and policy enhancements for reducing discrimination and improving the accommodation of physician religious identity in healthcare systems.
