Biases and discrimination among health care providers and the impacts on patient outcomes are well documented. Studies suggest implicit bias alone can be a stronger predictor of patient outcomes than treatment processes. Including appropriate bias and discrimination curriculum should be a priority of all health professional training programs to establish equitable care for all patients. The literature documents efforts at such programming for medical schools, yet no gold-standard exists. This program evaluation examines “What Happened and Why?” an innovative student-led program to address issues of bias and discrimination for first year medical students.
