Disability equality in medicine | BMA

BMA logo and resources details

Valuable Disability equality in medicine resources are available on the British Medical Association (BMA) website.

“Our work looks at the experiences of disabled doctors and medical students in education, training and the workplace and the priority areas for action to ensure they are properly supported and represented.” BMA


Disabled doctors and medical students exist at every level across the profession as valued and valuable members of the medical workforce, but they do not always get the support needed to enable them to thrive. Lack of disability awareness, discrimination and stigma can all have a detrimental impact on these doctors’ lives. Disability should not be a barrier to being a successful doctor.

The BMA is committed to promoting equal rights and opportunities, proactively tackling ableism and discrimination in all forms, and championing the contribution of all doctors and medical students with disabilities, long term health conditions and neurodiversity.
