Our Background

In 2017, Melanin Medics began as a blog with the sole purpose of increasing the representation of African and Caribbeans in Medicine. The platform quickly grew and the need for an organisation providing support and positive representation was identified. 

Today the organisation has grown significantly, reaching thousands of young people in the UK through outreach and hundreds of African and Caribbean current and future doctors. Melanin Medics has identified that Africans and Caribbeans in Medicine face a number of challenges on their career journeys and need to be better supported. 

Melanin Medics provides practical support through a number of programmes, events, engagements, outreach, networking opportunities and mentorship in order to fulfil our mission and address what we perceive to be a pressing issues.
