Surgical training is a highly selective and competitive process. Those that succeed are often privy to a hidden curriculum which guides their career planning.
Melanin Medics is a non-profit organisation committed to improving experiences of aspiring and current clinicians of African and Caribbean heritage.
We have developed a programmed aimed to improve knowledge of the hidden curriculum and upskill surgical trainees of the forementioned background, with support of the Royal College of Surgeons England.
The programme will run over 10 months and there will be four core sessions throughout the year, sessions will be on Saturday mornings. 75% attendance is required for successful course completion.
