Implicit Biases in Everyday Life: Live Webinar, 12/13/23


Meets the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs requirement for implicit bias training.

Beginning on June 1, 2022, and for every renewal thereafter, an applicant for license or registration renewal must have completed a minimum of 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of the applicant's license or registration cycle.

About the Course
This introductory and multimedia webinar is appropriate for all healthcare professionals. The course consists of a 1 ½ hour lecture presentation on Implicit Biases in Everyday Life followed by a 30-minute Q&A period with an implicit bias expert. Implicit bias comes from the unconscious mind, and often consists of unintentional thoughts and behaviors that impact professional practice. This course focuses on interpreting bias lingo and provides examples of the dangers of implicit bias and how these may be harmful to the healthcare provider and patient.

This interactive 2-hour implicit bias training provides historical context of race and its relationship to the development of racial implicit bias. You will be presented with a self-assessment to gauge your understanding of the topic before and after the training, and will have the opportunity to ask the presenter questions.

Important Information
Per the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Public Health Code rule, this training is in addition to any continuing education requirements required for renewal. Please see our MI Implicit Bias FAQ page for more details.
