Midlands Racial Equality in Medicine Network




The Midlands Racial Equality in Medicine (MREM) Network aims to build connections between regional medical schools to provide both staff and students with a platform to share upcoming initiatives, disseminate research and create joint ventures. Through this platform, research related to improving racial equality and reducing the attainment gap will gain more visibility and raise the profile of the individual working groups and their members. Positive role modelling and visible commitment towards improving outcomes for ethnic minorities will inspire students and staff alike. Improving the experiences and overall graduate outcomes amongst ethnic minority medical students is the paramount objective of the Network.
