Implicit bias refers to unconscious attitudes, assumptions and stereotypes toward a group. Biases are a preference or an aversion, and can be negative or positive.

Participants will assess and strengthen their cultural competence through interactive exercises and identify how some of their biases, preferences and thinking styles may affect their interactions with peers and patients.
