The Cultural Formation of the Clinician: Its Implications for Practice

GMS MA 640

This course provides a context for exploring and reflecting on one's own cultural formation, in relation to aspects of one's identity like gender, sexual orientation, social class, race, immigration, religion, age, mental health and addiction, and disabilities. Unearned social privilege, and related blind spots toward these parts of our identities, have been shown to increase risks for related health disparities and problematic research findings. The course examines how our unconscious biases can enter our work as care providers or researchers. Offered through M.S. program in Medical Anthropology. 3 cr, Fall sem. T 5:00-7:50, Medical Campus.
