The article discusses the use of a board game, Reality Check: The Game of Privilege, as a tool to promote dialogue and understanding of privilege among medical students and faculty. The game was played in groups of 5 to 6 participants, and each player assumed the role of a character with specific socioeconomic, sexual orientation, race, and gender identity. Debriefing sessions and anonymous surveys were conducted after each play session, and the findings were reviewed to identify themes and refine future play sessions. The results of the study showed that the game was effective in promoting discussion and reflection on the impact of privilege and bias on healthcare. The debriefing sessions and feedback from participants highlighted the complexity of privilege and circumstance and its impact on patients' care. The study's authors suggest that the game can be used to create a more inclusive and equitable healthcare system that meets the needs of all patients by recognizing and understanding privilege.
