BAPIO - British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin

 

We are a non-profit organisation open to all healthcare professionals, promoting diversity, equality and inclusion.

 

Since conception in 1996 with the initial aim of supporting international medical graduates, BAPIO has grown in stature and influence to become one of the largest organisations of its type in the country. We are represented through our numerous divisions covering all regions of the UK as well multiple sub forums.

We collaborate regularly with the General Medical Council,  Health Education England and the  Royal Colleges to monitor, highlight and address the difficulties faced by doctors and ensure positive systems are in place to support healthcare workers.  We focus on supporting and promoting professional links with International organisations as well providing charitable relief focusing on providing better health care globally.

We have successfully carried out many campaigns and have come a long way in reducing the inherent inequality in many aspects of education, training and career progression.

We have four arm’s length organisations:- Medical Defense ShieldBAPIO Training Academy , BAPIO Institute for Health Research  and British Indian Nurses Association 

 

However there is still more work to be done.  JOIN US  as we work towards having  a more inclusive and diverse society.
