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.


Please note: All Best Practice in Education Rounds are free of charge to anyone who may want to attend. Registration is required.

This BPER round is an accredited group learning activity as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. It is also accredited group learning activities as defined by the College of Family Physicians and Surgeons.
