CECE Event (Dean's Colloquium) – Prejudiced Patients: Caring for Those who Discriminate Against You

Both Campuses

The duty to care for all patients is central to the health professions, but how should students and clinicians respond when encountering patients who exhibit biased or discriminatory behaviors? Students and clinicians from minority backgrounds are more likely to experience mistreatment from patients during clinical training and practice. These experiences can be profoundly painful and degrading, contribute to clinician burnout, and worsen patient outcomes.

Join Pooja Chandrashekar, MD/MBA student at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Business School for a lively discussion on addressing patient bias and eliminiating discrimination in health professions learning environments.

CECE events are designed to give you as much opportunity as possible to learn about, from, and with each other, while maximizing responsiveness to changing conditions caused by COVID-19. Please check back often for latest information about viewing opportunities below:
