PREREQUISITE: Previous completion of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Champion Training is required before attending this workshop.

As health professions educators and clinicians, we are often called upon to discuss the origins of health disparities while teaching and delivering care. Stereotyping, bias, and lack of representation perpetuate false beliefs, lead to misdiagnosis, dangerously narrow clinical decision making, and perpetuate implicit bias, all of which lead to real health disparities. These forces also affect the integrity and safety of the learning climate and thus may impact the success of our learners. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the manifestations of structural bias and its impact on learners and patients. They will delve into the role health professions educators play in perpetuating bias and their potential to mitigate/dismantle it, specifically through the selection and creation of equitable curricular materials.

During this workshop, participants will:

  • Explore the multiple facets of identity and the consequences that perpetuating bias has on learners and clinical reasoning.
  • Using real-life examples, explore the manifestations of structural bias and its impact on learners and patients, exploring the role medical educators may play in perpetuating bias and their potential to mitigate (dismantle) it through the use of equitable curricular materials.
  • With other participants, co-create a rubric that can be used to assess and address bias in their curricular materials
  • Practice applying the rubric to real-world situations to promote equity

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe structural bias and the role of faculty and curricula in perpetuating vs interrupting stereotypes and bias in medical education
  • Apply a standardized tool/rubric to curricular materials in order to minimize bias and stereotyping
  • Model critical curricular evaluation to peers and colleagues
