Proceedings of the Diversity and Inclusion Innovation Forum: Unconscious Bias in Academic Medicine

This comprehensive report from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) describes “how the prejudices we don’t know we have affect medical education, medical careers, and patient health.” The report summarizes takeaways from a 2014 roundtable cohosted by AAMC and the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at the Ohio State University and contains chapters on medical school admissions, undergraduate medical education; resident recruitment; faculty recruitment; faculty mentoring; faculty advancement, promotion, and tenure; and patient care. Although the focus is academic medicine, many of the findings are applicable to the broader clinician experience.
