Regulating doctors, ensuring good medical practice
08 Aug 2012
We have made some short films about the experiences of disabled doctors and medical students and put them on our website.
We committed in the Education Strategy 2011-2013 to examine the challenges that disabled doctors face at all stages of education and training, and any implications for the regulatory framework.
We have begun a review of health and disability in medical education and training, and have set up an expert group to oversee this work.
As part of the review we have published the group's terms of reference, a statement about the implications of the Equality Act 2010, and the notes of a roundtable event held earlier this year.
Some of the roundtable participants agreed to share their personal experiences on camera, and the films are now available on our website.
We encourage people to look and these and share them with others. You can see the films at:
Experiences shared: short films about health and disability.
