Decolonising the Medical Curriculum


UCL Medical School Undergraduate Lecture Theatre
Level 1, Whittington Hospital | London | London | N19 5NF | United Kingdom

Open to: Alumni | Public | Academic | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Ticketed and Pre-booking essential

Medicine has been influenced by a history of colonial medicine where the voices of white, male, heterosexual, western attitudes have dominated the medical narrative. In the era of #Metoo, women's marches and the Black Panther film social activism, we are exploring conversations around decolonising medicine as part of the UCL ‘Liberating the Curriculum’ ethos.

You are warmly invited to a 'Decolonising the Medical Curriculum' public engagement event. It will be an afternoon of performance art, history and medicine. It will feature Turner-Prize nominated artist Marvin Gaye Chetwynd to provoke debate and conversation. Cultural historian Dr Lindsay Porter will present historical examples through a range of media. A UCL staff/student panel and an open microphone session for the public will be part of the event. The afternoon will be filmed and inspiring video clips will be used to develop an e-learning platform.
