Revision of the School of Medicine Curriculum
Dr. Smith currently co-chairs the Diversity, Health Equity and Inclusion Curriculum Committee, an effort to not only review existing didactic materials for instances of bias, but to also update DHEI learning objectives and make sure they are purposefully addressed in the curriculum.
To conduct a systematic review of the curriculum, The School of Medicine is partnering with Dr. Amy Caruso Brown at SUNY Upstate Medical University to use “A Checklist for Assessing Bias in Health Professions Education Content.”
Dr. Mabachi and Alonso-Luaces lead the professional development sessions with faculty aimed at familiarizing them with the Checklist and providing a space to reflect on usage and effectiveness as we work to tailor this phenomenal tool to our particular institutional context.
