BAME Students' Support
This page has been co-created with BME Medics, BME Success Advocates from Bristol Medical School, the BAME Working Group and Bristol SU BME Network. These groups provide social and networking opportunities, support and advocacy for BAME students at the University of Bristol and work closely with Bristol Medical School to develop a diverse and inclusive curriculum.
BAME Student Working Group
Non-BAME Galenicals members cannot understand the lived experience of racism, but we must all stand with our BAME colleagues to support them. The University has a ‘Report and Support’ tool for all instances of racism and this should be used to report any incidents of discrimination. At Galenicals, we will always believe our BAME members and support them to report racism using this tool.
The Report and Support service is run by the University of Bristol, to report instances anonymously or to request contact from an advisor for support. They also have a range of supportive resources on different areas such as discrimination, bullying and mental health. This tool however, only covers discrimination faced in the University. If you are an undergraduate medical student and are concerned about something that occurs on placement you should contact your Year Lead and/or your Academy Dean.
Below is a list of university support services available to students, some of which are specifically designed to support BAME students:
