  1. Making medical recruitment practices fair.

    Article - En anglais

    The fact that in the past each medical student was assured of a post when qualified has led many in medicine to believe that selection for recruitment is merely a formality based on qualification and accreditation.

    Consequently little thought has gone into developing detailed person or post selection criteria.

    As a result most recruitment panel members are unclear on what basis to discriminate between equally qualified candidates and invariably plump for'the face that fits'This practice discriminates against women, black doctors and those white men not quite acceptable in manner, dress or attitudes.

    In this article, advice is offered on the development of equality strategies for public sector organisations and on the implementation of fair practices.
