We are committed to challenging the norm and standing up for equality and diversity. We want our College community to reflect the diversity in the NHS workforce. We are very active in seeking to address the imbalance of women in senior medical leadership roles and our President Prof Jackie Taylor is leading by example.
Please do get in touch if there is an area of work focused around the inclusivity issues faced by the healthcare profession that you would be interested in working with us on – contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leadership Development Scholarship Programme: Developing Female Medical and Academic Leaders
The University of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow are seeking applications for four fully funded scholarships to develop female medical and clinical-academic leaders. You can find more information here.
Tell me, how do I feel?
We are addressing gender inequality issues through our heritage exhibitions and events programme with a screening of films from the LUX and Cinenova collections, exploring the affect that medical procedures and social norms have on women’s bodies and their experiences of pain. This screening forms part of artist Annie Crabtree’s ongoing research into the construction of knowledge in medicine and how medical practice is informed by (and informs) cultural norms, behaviours and assumptions. These short films have been selected for their potential to question the dominance of objectivity in medical discourse in comparison to the ‘less reliable’ subjective experience. This screening is supported by LUX Scotland. You can book your place here.
