Inclusive & Bias-Free
Feinberg is committed to an inclusive curriculum that is free of bias and promotes health equity for all.
We educate students in a safe and healthy learning environment that:
- Acknowledges the existence and impact of bias and encourages open dialogue and reflection
- Is inclusive in representations of healthy/normal/pathology
- Avoids stereotypes
- Acknowledges limitations of research that does not include underrepresented populations
- Explores differences in health outcomes and responses to treatment
- Develops skills for advocacy and intervention
- Confronts and mitigates attitudes and behaviors that adversely impact people with various identities based upon gender identity, sexuality, ability, socioeconomics, age, national origin, culture and political/religious views
