Strengthening Cultural Humility, Dismantling Implicit Bias in the Healthcare Setting

(90-minute, self-paced course)

This training will focus on increasing cultural conscientiousness, sensitivity and humility. It will also broaden participant’s awareness of their own implicit biases (subtle, unconscious assumptions about others) and equip them with tools to engage with patients/clients, in more open, respectful and empathetic ways.

Course meets the requirements of California State laws on implicit bias training and the requirements for California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Medi-Cal doula providers.

After completing the course you will receive a Certificate of Completion.  This is the only documentation needed for DHCS Medi-Cal Doula providers. CE credits are not required by DHCS for Medi-Cal doulas. 

Note: If you are a birthworker or provider that needs CE credits, the Implicit Bias course above is available HERE.
