FROM BIAS TO BELONGING: Navigating Personal and Professional Experiences of Bias and Racism in Healthcare

Although equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) has become a strategic priority in medical education, efforts to advance social justice through educational interventions face several barriers. For example, any educational interventions that seek to improve equity often involve sensitive topics related to EDI that provoke emotional and defensive reactions. In addition advancing equity and justice requires critical reflection about our personal and professional identities, as well as the systems in which we learn and work. In this presentation we will share stories of personal and professional experiences while describing literature on addressing implicit, explicit, and structural biases.

Useful to Whom? Program Evaluation Utilization & Scope in Good Times & COVID-19 Times

What is perceived as useful program evaluation can be highly debatable, among program stakeholders. However, despite perpetual mandates for evaluation in health professions education, there has been limited examination of the value that different stakeholders gain (or seek to gain) from program evaluation. In this presentation, the speakers will introduce our audience to evaluation utilization theory and research. They will explore different forms of evaluation utilization and discuss the influence that prioritization of different forms of evaluation utilization can have on both the scope and impact of evaluation scholarship. In the second part of the presentation, they will reflect on and discuss how the current pandemic has affected the scope and use of evaluation in medical education. Ultimately, these rounds should stimulate thinking about what is required for transparent evaluation inquiry and practice that facilitates meaningful evaluation utilization. Furthermore, the insights shared should allow medical educators and scholars alike, to better align their curricular, scholarly, and administrative intentions with appropriate evaluation methodologies.
