The IOM's seminal report "Unequal Treatment" made the case that disparities in health care go beyond access- quality inside the clinic plays a considerable role. Black and Latino children are given less pain medication for the same symptoms. Women are treated later and less intensively for heart attacks. An ample body of evidence suggests this differential treatment is due in part to clinician implicit bias. It seems to me that medical education has the opportunity to help the next generation of providers challenge those inner biases and prevent them from impacting clinical behavior. What responsibility does the medical education system have to address implicit bias in trainees? What promising practices can we point to? What barriers exist to standardizing such education?
