This is the fourth in a series of four podcasts created by @EarthResusTeam as a stimulus for the interprofessional student environmental healthcare unconference at University of Birmingham.
In this episode, the team discuss what steps we can take now as healthcare students. The podcast includes excerpts from conversations with:
- Dr Becki Taylor-Smith, Anaesthetic registrar, Chair of the Green Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Network – West Midlands and Chief Sustainability Officer’s Clinical Fellow
- Dr Cleo Kenington, Consultant surgeon and Sustainability Lead for the Association of Surgeons
- Dr Filip Maric, Associate Professor in Physiotherapy at the Arctic University of Norway and founder of the Environmental Physiotherapy Association.

The environmental healthcare unconference is a student-led learning activity developed as part of a HEFi Education Enhancement Fund project. The podcast series was recorded and edited by Nicky Manu, Rhea Khosla, Katie Ingham, Lauren Glover and Sam Jennings from Earth Resus Team.
