Interrupting Microaggressions in Health Care Settings: A Guide for Teaching Medical Students

Date of Review: September, 2020

This resource, from MedEdPORTAL, is a ready made curriculum for a 1.5 hour workshop teaching skills in how to recognize and handle microaggressions in real time. It was designed for medical students but could be used for any level of learner, and in any field of study. The materials are easily accessible (free download) and comprehensible. It does not appear to require much prep time. The teaching strategies are: lecture, role play and small group discussion. Real life scenarios are solicited from the audience ahead of the workshop to use in discussion. –Susan Hasti, MD, NCEAS
