Black Doctors in Leadership

5th March 2022

We will be discussing leadership in the NHS, with a panel of black medics in positions of leadership, management and/or policymaking. We feel this is an important topic and pertinent to our roles as current and future doctors.

We have some fantastic panellists lined up – keep an eye out on the

socials for panellist announcements soon!

whats your blood type - get the chance to find out your blood type, hear from bame blood donors

What's Your (Blood) Type?

19th February 2022

The NHS desperately needs more BAME donors. Those in need of blood benefit from donations from blood donors from a similar ethnic background, and some rare blood types are only found within BAME communities! Stem cell donations are also extremely important.

So come along to the SU to learn more about blood and stem cell donation from NHSBT and Anthony Nolan. You'll even be able to learn your own blood type (it just takes a finger prick!).

If getting the chance to learn how you could save up to three lives every time you donate wasn't enough, free food will be provided courtesy of Tiffin Truck!

Racial Justice & Health Week

  • What's Your (Blood) Type? - Visit the SU lounge to find out your blood type and register for blood and stem cell donation (+ free food!).

Final year student Daniel Oluboyede will be hosting a webinar, where he will be addressing a number of best practices for learning clinical medicine for exams and beyond, utilising his experience of the Cambridge Clinical School and USMLEs. This would be particularly useful for CBMS members in the first year of clinical school, but will also be of value to students in Years 3-5/CGC years 1-3.
