2019 Conference: University of Liverpool

2nd DIMAH Conference 2019

This conference was held on 9th May 2019 10am-5pm at the Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool. We aimed to build on the success of our first conference and encourage health care academics and trainers to bring students to continue the conversation about how diversity issues are being embedded in the curriculum.

At the conference, we heard students’ perspectives on issues such as equity, inclusion and diversity curriculum development. In past years DIMAH has focused exclusively on curriculum development but at this conference we want to emphasise the importance of making links between diversity curriculum change and the attainment gap. It is so important we don’t work in silos on these issues and that we learn from all the health care curricula and students.
