    Incidents of bias and microaggressions are prevalent in the clinical setting and are disproportionately experienced by racial minorities, women, and medical students. These incidents contribute to burnout. This session will provide an overview of a workshop developed at Vanderbilt School of Medicine that teaches medical students a framework to respond to incidents of bias. The facilitator guide and relevant workshop/course materials are freely available from the AAMC MedEdPORTAL collection to aid in the implementation of this model at other institutions.
