2021 DOM Annual Clinical Faculty Teaching Retreat

February 24, 2021

Please note: this is a virtual event via Zoom


 

Description

The events of 2020 have raised significant awareness of the biases both conscious and unconscious that create disparity and affect healthcare.  Multiple studies demonstrate the impact of disparity on health care delivery, individual patient outcomes and recruitment of next generation of physicians.  Faculty in the department of medicine are acutely aware of these issues and have asked for further education especially around what to do about it.  As clinical educators, they recognize the need to educate themselves about these issues to be better role models for learners.  This virtual retreat, led by Dr. Kimberly Manning, a national leader on this topic, will address the issue of bias including practical techniques in how to overcome our own personal biases as educators.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for all of the clinical teaching faculty in the Department of Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital, as well as faculty from the Newton Wellesley Hospital. This includes primary care preceptors, sub-specialty educator coordinators, inpatient attendings, intensive care unit attendings, cardiology inpatient attendings.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: 

  1. Discuss the definition of implicit bias and recognize the roots of implicit bias in individuals and our society today.
  2. Recognize the impact of implicit bias on patient care and medical education.
  3. Practice using the tools provided to recognize our own biases and how to mitigate them.
