Naabil Khan is a BMBS student studying at Exeter. She has carried out multiple projects within the medical and non-medical spheres. Her roles have led her to speaking at the Exeter Respect Launch, Future Frontline events and the 2023 BMA conference. She is a podcast host with another Exeter colleague where she has used her platform to raise awareness about the GMC, the BMA, medical accessibility and other medical conversations. Alongside this, she is a writer for DYYV, a student-led news site, covering various medical and social topics in medical education. Aside from this, Naabil has also presented to the British Medical Association (BMA). Additionally, Naabil also co-hosts the podcast Very Junior Doctors with Chloe Jones.
Resources to explore before the session:
- Are 'whitewashed' medical textbooks putting black lives at risk?
- Lack of darker skin in textbooks, journals harm patients of color
- More Than Skin Deep: Underrepresentation of Brown and Black Skin in Medical Education
Understanding the issue of scarce ethnic minority representation means that the medical world, as a collective, can work towards a future of representation and equality within the healthcare system.
Questions to consider:
• What does representation mean to you?
• What impact does ethnic minority representation have on education?
• Why has a culture of ill-representation been present in medical education?
