The College of Medicine-Tucson is committed to eradicating systemic racism and creating a learning environment in which all students and educators feel welcome and encouraged to participate.
ARiM stands for Anti-racism in Medicine. Curricular Affairs has partnered with the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion to raise awareness of unconscious bias and promote anti-racism in our curriculum and learning environment. Several committees are addressing faculty development, assessment, curriculum content and other critical aspects of the UME and GME experience.
What is Curricular Affairs doing?
- Developing a workplace-based assessment for clerkship that emphasizes real time assessment of student performance with formative feedback
- Developing training for faculty on inclusivity in teaching practice and enhancing the learning environment
- Providing resources for enhancing teaching in preclerkship and clerkship curricula to improve the learning experience
