Education & Training

The Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) hosts a variety of training and educational opportunties in collaboration with the Office of Pediatric Education to create a culture of continuous reflection, learning, and action.  

Health Equity Advanced through Learning (HEAL) Initiative


Originally developed in SPAARC 1.0, the Health Equity Advanced through Learning (HEAL) Initiative encompasses 4 educational opportunities for the Department of Pediatrics:

  • HEAL Anti-Racism Seminar
  • HEAL Email Challenge
  • Health Equity Rounds (HER)
  • Huddle Guides

HEAL Anti-Racism Seminar

The Department of Pediatrics' goal is for at least 70% of faculty and staff to complete the seminar by August 2022.

HEAL Email Challenge

After attending the HEAL Anti-Racism Seminar, participants take part in a 2 week email challenge to support our culture of continuous learning and growth in our anti-racsim journeys.  

Health Equity Rounds

Health Equity Rounds is a case-based learning series focused on issues related to health equity and approaching patient care with a DEI lens. The presenters use real case discussions to highlight the role of bias, oppression, and other barriers in care and provide individual and local-level tools to mitigate them.

Huddle Guides

Huddle Guides are one-page guides designed to use in short huddles or reoccuring meetings. The primary objective is to assure clinical teams have similar information and training for a unified approach in patient care settings.
