Unconscious Bias

The University of Kansas Medical Center seeks to build and support a diverse, inclusive and interprofessional environment that optimizes its ability to meet its missions. These missions are to educate the next generation of health care providers and leaders, conduct research that improves health and health care delivery, and provide high-quality, patient-centered health care to the citizens of Kansas and the region.

KU Medical Center offers Unconscious Bias (UB) training as one strategy to advance our goals of building a diverse and inclusive institution. UB is the phenomenon of hidden bias that emerges from individual lived experiences, particularly in the moment of decision-making. UB can impact the workplace, educational institutions and the healthcare setting through organizational culture, individual decision-making and policies such as admissions decisions, performance management, and quality care.

Learning about UB and how to mitigate bias can help us make more purposeful decisions for the university.
