Making DEI a Habit in Your Curriculum

April 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm







Spring 2022 CIPhER programs will only be offered via Zoom.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education & Research (CIPhER) and the Office of Organization Diversity & Inclusion.

Making DEI a Habit in Your Curriculum

12:00 pm – 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, April 20, 2022, via Zoom

Old habits die hard. As a microcosm of society, pharmacy education has constructs, habits, and routines that impact what we do, how we do it, and our ability to change with the times. This program will explore these constructs, habits, and routines and discuss how we can create new habits and routines that are developed through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Participants will review and learn about preliminary data from assessment tools used by the University of Georgia as we roll out newly integrated DEI learning activities and be able to engage in some of the activities developed for its curriculum

Learning Objectives:  At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how social constructs, habits, and routines impact organizational and curricular effectiveness
  2. Identify ways to integrate DEI and Social Determinants of Health (SODH) into a PharmD curriculum
  3. Define how one school has developed assessment tools to evaluate student confidence in initiating conversation and discussion of DEI and SODH topics

Target Audience:  This program is designed for all faculty, staff, preceptors, trainees, and students.

Registration:  For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00. (UNC Affiliates are faculty, staff, trainees, students, preceptors and residents who currently work for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or support its students.)

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Friday, April 15, at 5 p.m.
