About Us

Our Vision

To provide a culturally competent and supportive program that recruits and retains Indigenous medical students and faculty, while increasing awareness of First Nations, Inuit and Métis issues.

Since it was established in 2005, the Indigenous Program at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine has recruited and supported Indigenous students throughout their medical education.

The program strives to increase awareness of Indigenous cultures, health, social issues and traditional knowledge within the MD curriculum. This focus ensures that medical students will practice culturally safe care in serving Indigenous populations.
