Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Clinical academia must be as equitable, diverse, and inclusive as possible. All stakeholders should be taking active steps to better include under-represented groups both in the clinical academic workforce and as participants in research. Thankfully there is now a widespread acceptance in the healthcare sector that we need to do this much better.

Breaking down barriers to entry into a clinical academic career is not only the right thing to do, it also ensures that anybody with the right talent and passion can succeed in the sector and generates a welcome diversity of knowledge. Research into human health also relies on representation of the whole population in clinical studies to ensure that research findings are generalisable across the population.

These pages outline some of the steps being taken across clinical academia to address these issues, the initiatives that have been set up, and links to organisations that are actively working and campaigning in this area.
