Ore Odubiyi

Ore Odubiyi is currently a 4th year Medicine MB ChB undergraduate at the University of Bristol, having completed an intercalated degree in Global Health BSc (Hons) in 2019.

During this time, Ore founded BME Medics, an organisation launched in 2018 committed to the improvement of diversity and inclusion within healthcare, alongside some colleagues. The organisation continues to expand to oversee multiple university campus societies. She tackles the lack of ethnic diversity in medical student cohorts through curating widening participation programmes, from a bespoke annual conference encouraging secondary school students from BAME communities to aspire to become doctors, to providing help to prospective BAME medical students in their medical school applications. She also addresses the disproportionate health outcomes seen in various minority ethnic groups and delivers teaching on racial bias in healthcare to medical students and medical professionals. She has also had the privilege to present to key stakeholders in the health sector. Ore raises awareness of health issues impacting various BAME communities from personal platforms, to national press (The Mail on Sunday, LBC Radio, RT UK, The Guardian). Additionally, her commitment to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion has led to her being appointed as a Member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Bristol, governing and shaping key strategy for years to come.
