GASP team up with CSH for the Medical School Sustainability Roadshow
Updated: Jan 17
We are two doctors from different specialties with a very similar goal; to share our collective knowledge and experience in making healthcare more sustainable. From an environmental and financial perspective, we are at an exciting time to make meaningful and effective change to the way healthcare is provided for and delivered. As clinicians of the future we understand that medical students have an integral role in this.
The current hierarchical structures that unfortunately prevail in hospitals act as a barrier to students getting involved in Sustainability Quality Improvement. Given the urgency in combating the climate crisis we cannot sit and wait for this up to date, enthusiastic, innovative group to 'blossom' into doctors. We need them on our team now!
We provide an engaging and wide-reaching programme focusing on enabling students to understand the increasing importance of sustainable values in healthcare, while providing them with the tools to implement change.
