The Texas Medical Association Women Physicians Section encourages all TMA members to participate in a CME course that addresses gender bias in the physician workforce and promotes greater diversity in medicine.
The course, Unconscious Bias in Medicine, was selected as part of the section’s goal to provide implicit bias training for all TMA members. The association supports bias training for all medical students, physicians, and medical staff.
Offered through California’s Stanford University School of Medicine, the course includes case studies that show examples of unconscious bias, and provides opportunities for self-assessment, organizers said.
The training also:
- Describes the effects of unconscious bias in everyday interactions with patients, students, colleagues, and team members; and
- Applies specific “bias-busting” techniques that can be used in the medical and academic environment.
Unconscious Bias in Medicine has been accredited for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
You also can find the course on the Women Physician Section’s webpage. For more information on the training or the section, contact section staff via email.
