What is it that UK and IMG ethnic GP trainees ask of the Royal College of GPs?
The CSA has the highest pass rate for white British female doctors and the highest failure rate for Black, Chinese and Indian male doctors, yet all have completed the 3-year UK GP specialty training programme with good patient satisfaction surveys and regular reviews with their respective GP trainers. Interestingly there is a 20% total discrepancy between male and female pass rates and a 10% discrepancy between white UK male and white UK female pass rates, with the latter female pass rate being higher. There is also a discrepancy between white, black, Indian and chinese UK doctor pass rates with a double chance of failing as an Indian UK graduate and a triple chance of failing as a black UK graduate when compared to that of a white UK graduate.
