Bill mandating bias training passes Md. Legislature

April 12, 2021

SB05 aims to confront racial inequality in the healthcare system through legislation that targets individual care providers and the state as a whole. If passed, evidence-based implicit bias training would be required of any health care professional looking to renew their license with a health occupations board or the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education every two years.
