OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS
Exploring the role of unconscious bias in seven areas of academic medicine, this publication looks at the benefits of diversity and inclusion and potential interventions to remediate biases in modern academic medicine. The AAMC developed this publication with The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University, along with input from national experts. The publication also summarizes interventions that are being used to remediate these biases, including:
- Admissions committee members may sometimes unconsciously create different sets of criteria for students based on their experiences.
- The unconscious biases of peers and teachers can produce lasting effects on students’ academic experiences.
- Unconscious bias can affect the faculty recruitment process even before positions are advertised.
- Patient care can improve when physicians explore their own biases and how these tendencies affect the care they provide.
- There is ample evidence that interventions can attenuate and even reverse unconscious bias.
