Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) Implicit Bias Training Requirement

Posted: 06/22/2022

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) now requires implicit bias training for physicians and other health care professionals. The requirements apply to both new applicants as well as those renewing their existing licenses or registrations starting on June 1, 2022. 

An applicant renewing a license is required to complete 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of their license or registration cycle. New applicants for licensure are required to have completed 2 hours of implicit bias training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.

The implicit bias training must include strategies to reduce disparities in access to and delivery of health care services, pre and post assessments and a live component. Many professional medical education companies claim they meet Michigan LARA requirements, however, most do not.  Below are implicit bias training opportunities that meet the Michigan LARA requirements:

3-Hour Implicit Bias Trainings:

1. A Day of Board of Medicine Renewal Requirements

2. Implicit Bias in Healthcare Workshop

1-2 Hour Implicit Bias Trainings:

1. Implicit Bias in Healthcare Training (1 hour)

2. Implicit Bias in Healthcare Masterclass (2 hours)

3. Michigan Health Council: Implicit Bias Recognition and Remediation Training (2 hours)
