Description

Internet Enduring Material Sponsored by the Stanford University School of Medicine. Presented by the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity at Stanford University School of Medicine

This CME activity provides education on unconscious bias in the academic medicine workplace. Existing research on unconscious bias will provide a science-based view of this seemingly non-science topic. Case studies with examples of unconscious bias, self-assessment opportunities, and exploring bias busting strategies will enable learners to understand how to bring the content into their own unique environments.
