Our committee’s goal is to create a standardized curricular guide for medical school educators to use, to ensure future physicians are knowledgeable about the weight bias in medicine, and have the skills and tools to make healthcare more equitable.

We also find importance in reviewing current medical school curricula for the presence of weight bias and discrimination, and propose changes to improve existing material.

By advocating for curricular change, we hope that all medical students and providers learn the importance of recognizing personal biases against patients in larger bodies.
