As of January 1, 2022 per CA State law, all education programs must include information on implicit bias and cultural and linguistic competency. Below are links to the legislation and the California Medical Association’s definitions.

Cultural & Linguistic Competency (CLC) definition: The ability and readiness of health care providers and organizations to humbly and respectfully demonstrate, effectively communicate, and tailor delivery of care to patients with diverse values, beliefs, identities, and behaviors, in order to meet social, cultural and linguistic needs as they relate to patient health. Implicit Bias (IB) definition: The attitudes, stereotypes, and feelings, either positive or negative, that affect our understanding, actions and decisions without conscious knowledge or control. Implicit bias is a universal phenomenon. When negative, implicit bias often contributes to unequal treatment and disparities in diagnosis, treatment decisions, levels of care and health care outcomes of people based on race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, and other characteristics.
