Everyone has bias. It’s just part of our human nature, a survival mechanism. The challenge comes when you aren’t aware of the impact it has on your effectiveness. The key to thoughtful choice is developing your capacity to identify invisible assumptions and patterns of thinking.
The AAMC has partnered with Cook Ross Inc to present a course on unconscious bias for health professions audiences. Cook Ross has developed an evidence-based, dynamic one-day workshop in which you will explore how your assumptions impact choices around communication, innovation, hiring, engagement, management, promotion, marketing, and building organizational culture.
