Microaggressions in medicine
Microaggressions are behaviors that stem from implicit bias and occur at an interpersonal level. In medicine, microaggressions may be encountered both in training and clinical practice. Although often unintentional or unconscious by the offender, microaggressions are harmful to the health and safety of women and underrepresented minority (URM) medical students, residents, physicians, other providers, and patients. This article aims to define microaggressions, present example scenarios, and provide discourse regarding microaggressions within the framework of medicine.
