The Medical School has a deep commitment to embracing and nurturing an environment of diversity, inclusiveness, equal opportunity and respect for the similarities and differences in our community. Reflecting this dedication, OFA offers training in implicit bias. This workshop introduces the breadth of implicit bias research, helping participants recognize shortcuts that are the result of unconscious or unexamined bias. It assists faculty in their roles during search processes, search committees, promotion and tenure committees, or other activities. Participants learn about best practices and resources for addressing implicit bias in the context of search and selection processes.
Through a series of short lectures via Canvas, you’ll learn about the history of structural racism in the US healthcare system. We will acknowledge the myriad ways in which this country's long and violent history of racial oppression and injustice continues to impact the lives and health of Black Americans, Indigenous people, and other people of color. This self-paced faculty development curriculum is composed of six video modules, discussion questions, as well as slides, articles, and a TED talk you can view at your own convenience.
The Office of Faculty Affairs has developed new remote faculty development opportunities during this period of remote working. For registration and more information, please visit our webpage.
