An often used term that attempts to unearth the underlying causes of friction in patient-physician relationships is "medical mistrust." However, this term runs the risk of misplacing responsibility on the patient and their beliefs, rather than urging medical practitioners to critically examine their own biases and institutions, which may lead to inconsistent, unequal care that drives medical mistrust among certain communities. How can we encourage each other to identify and discuss physician implicit bias as a driver of patient medical mistrust, and beyond the Harvard implicit bias test, how might we engage our fellow physicians on this issue of self-inspection of biases?
