B3: Anti-racist medical education

Session speaker(s):
Prof Dominic Patterson
Dr Margaret Ikpoh

Session objectives:

  • Develop a shared understanding of how racism impacts on training progression and differential attainment
  • Explore how an active anti-racist approach to the organisation, planning and delivery of education, training and support can improve experience and outcomes
  • Identify personal and organisational actions to address racism in individual organisations 

Session summary:
This session will briefly explore the background to racism in medical education, including narrative lived experience from trainees to highlight the issues. However, the main focus will be to explore a shift towards active anti-racism and will include sharing of exemplars of current activity in this area, including drawing on the experience within postgraduate medical education in HEE North East and Yorkshire. These include anti-racism training and workshops for all educators, reverse mentoring, an affinity group, and freedom to speak up networks,

This isn’t going to be a talking shop. Participants will be encouraged to identify actions as individuals and organisations so they leave with a meaningful output from the session.
