Midlands Racial Equality in Medicine Network


Saturday 26th Feb 2022


10.00 - 16.30


We are delighted to be launching the Midlands Racial Equality in Medicine Network at the inaugural hybrid conference here at Warwick Medical School.

The MREM Network aims to develop lasting relationships between regional medical schools, linking groups within these institutions dedicated to reducing the attainment gap and improving racial equality in medicine. These connections will enable the sharing of data and initiatives to develop effective 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 modeling and visible commitment towards improving outcomes for ethnic minorities will inspire students and staff alike. 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we plan to run this year's conference as a hybrid event. We very much hope you’ll be able to join us in person at the Medical School. However, where possible, we plan to live stream some sessions for those who need to attend online.

Certificates for Portfolio Evidence of Attendance will be available.

Conference Aims

  • Provide an opportunity for ethnic minority academics, clinicians, and students to network
  • Increase the profile of research conducted by people from an ethnic minority background
  • Inspire and encourage medical students from ethnic minority backgrounds to explore research opportunities by increasing the visibility of role models
  • Provide a platform for medical schools to share best practices and collaborate on matters relating to racial equality
  • To foster a sense of community amongst students from an ethnic minority background across medical schools in the midlands

Who should attend?

This event will bring together a group of exceptional individuals across various ethnic minority backgrounds to showcase and share achievements and experiences.

Everyone with an interest in racial equality, differential attainment and widening participation amongst ethnic minority populations is invited to attend. Each year, a number of places at the conference are reserved for students from an ethnic minority background.
