Inclusive teaching and learning practices are instrumental in creating and maintaining a learning environment where all participants are fully engaged and respected, and where all participants are open to ideas, perspectives, and ways of thinking that are distinct from their own. These practices support meaningful and accessible learning for all learners and help shape the best experiences for learners, preceptors, and patients.

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