Come hear from one of Region 2's Year 1 subawardees!
Transformation in care delivery and teaching methods in medical education related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is widely needed. As the physician workforce continues to become more diverse, it is imperative to educate residents on strategies to combat acts of discrimination as they recognize their own biases. This webinar session will describe The Fraser Resource Center & Health Science Library’s longitudinal DEI simulation journey utilizing virtual reality (VR). Participants will have an opportunity to participate in a virtual VR immersive experience related to DEI.
