OFDD’s Online Courses

Stanford Medicine offers a variety of resources and programs designed to address unconscious biases and microaggressions. Here is a list of resources provided by Stanford and other organizations.

CME Course: Unconscious Bias in Medicine

This CME activity provides education on unconscious bias in the academic medicine workplace. Existing research on unconscious bias will provide a science-based view of this seemingly non-science topic. Case studies with examples of unconscious bias, self-assessment opportunities, and exploring bias busting strategies will enable learners to understand how to bring the content into their own unique environments.
