Understanding Unconscious Bias in Residency Recruitment

Unconscious bias may have a significant impact on the medical residency application process. In support of the ERAS team’s commitment to Training and Learning, the AAMC’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion has developed and shared an informative video available for your understanding of unconscious bias in academic medicine.

Overall, the AAMC strives to cultivate human capital by enhancing the skills of individuals; build organizational capacity by improving institutions’ ability to use diversity as a driver of excellence; and grow a diverse and culturally-prepared health workforce by improving the integration of public health concepts into medical education
