Karen Schultz (Pinky), MD, CCFP, FCCP. I was born and raised in Vancouver, and thus still live in perpetual hope that winter will be only 2 months long!  I have worked as a family physician at Queen’s essentially my whole working career, and currently have the honour of being the associate dean for PGME.  I live in Kingston with my husband and wonder dog Gus, and have 2 grown kids off doing exciting things in various places.

Exploring the Phenomenon of the Hidden Curriculum.
In 2019 we embarked on a journey to explore the extent and impacts of the hidden curriculum on medical learners and practitioners at Queen’s.  Although the hidden curriculum can impact many things we specifically explored how this plays out amongst different specialties in medicine.  The results were impactful with some profound ideas about causes and solutions which we are now trying to implement.  Although this study was confined to medicine the phenomenon is not.  To truly shift culture it is time to broaden the conversation and see how we can work collaboratively to address the hidden curriculum to improve our learning and working environments and care for our mutual patients.  This session is a start to that conversation.

The recording will be shared with registrants approximately one week after the session.
