Faculty Training

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Office of Regulatory Affairs, and Office of Faculty Affairs have been working in collaboration to ensure we are fostering a culture of belongingness and inclusion at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

At Feinberg, we are committed to a core mission of conducting exceptional research; educating leaders, physicians, scientists, and allied health professionals; and ensuring the advancement of equity.  

As a necessary component of onboarding for Full Time Regular and Research Faculty at Feinberg, Faculty will participate in a small group training: “Disrupting Bias in Academic Medicine within the first year of their employment.  

This 90 minute in-person workshop will specifically address the role of bias in various medical practice inconsistencies and provide tools/ skills that can be used to minimize the impact of provider bias allowing for equitable and bias free interactions with patients and trainees. The goal is to provide health care providers with the knowledge and skills necessary to be aware of and mitigate bias in all aspects of academic medicine (patient care, research and medical education). 


  1. Define implicit bias and examine the impact of implicit bias and microaggressions in healthcare. 
  2. Provide skills to help recognize and move beyond bias in academic medicine.
  3. Enhance Feinberg Faculty's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion for our patients, trainees and colleagues. 

Dates for this training will be held throughout the academic year. This website will be updated as new training dates are added.
