Now that the we have our first African-American presidential candidate, Race has become a major subject. Would whites be less prejudiced against blacks if they saw them from the time they were babies? It works that way for pediatricians.
A new study shows that physicians?like society at large?hold subconscious racial attitudes and stereotypes, which may contribute to racial disparities in medical treatment. The pediatricians in the study ALSO showed an implicit preference for whites. However, in this group of doctors?who worked at a large urban medical center?these doctors had LESS “implicit race bias” than physicians in other specialties.
