Studies on Bias Free Curriculum and Faculty Development

“This past week has evoked many different feelings for me – humility, understanding, perspective, shock, and more. Having worked with vulnerable populations and taken racial equity courses previously, I thought I had a solid grasp on the pervasiveness of systemic inequalities that affect our communities. However, there was so much more to learn from the various small group discussions, panelist conversations, and independent exercises that were integrated into Intersession I. It was humbling to learn the context behind current social determinants of health. Reflecting on those activities have pushed me to think deeply about the lens through which we view patient care and what we can do as thought leaders to improve conditions for vulnerable populations especially.”
