Conference report on Diversity in Medicine and Health

In May a national conference addressed issues relating to diversity in medical education.

Hosted by ‘Diversity in Medicine and Health’ (DIMAH), which is chaired by Professor Nisha Dogra (pictured) from our Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour, it involved medical schools across the United Kingdom.  The conference highlighted the importance of diversity in medical undergraduate education.

The conference aimed to address the way in which diversity education can be best delivered in medical schools in order to develop, promote and provide excellent medical practice for health care delivery to patients from diverse backgrounds. By accomplishing this, future doctors will be better equipped to improve patient experience and clinical care.

This was the first conference hosted by DIMAH.
