Invited talk for Decolonising Lancaster University

Cecilia Vinchenzo, Student President of BME Medics Society and 5th Year Medical Student, and Dr Brigit McWade, Lecturer in Medical Sociology present the story so far of our travels into decolonising medical education at Lancaster University and beyond!

Over the last academic year, staff and students at Lancaster Medical School have explored students’ experiences of racism throughout their 5 year degree in Medicine and Surgery, including across the multi-sited learning environment (at uni and on clinical placement) and our interdisciplinary curriculum that covers medical sciences, epidemiology, sociology, psychology, ethics, philosophy and law. These local initiatives will be placed within the national context of racialised health inequalities and the race inequalities experienced by healthcare professionals working in the NHS.
