Being an Upstander in Academic Medicine



Full course description

Course Introduction
See something, say something. Mistreatment of those in academic medicine and healthcare occurs often and negatively affects the targets of these behaviors. Many providers and educators are committed to developing a positive climate for learners and colleagues but lack the training and skills to facilitate discussions about mistreatment and discrimination. As a result, these difficult but important conversations may not occur, impacting our communities even more. Actively engaging in completing this module, along with using these intervention strategies to be an upstander, is one conscious step toward and committing to IUSM's mission and core values.
