Indigenous Health Introduction

Since its inception in 2005, the Indigenous Program has contributed to social accountability at the Faculty of Medicine through the recruitment, admissions and support of Indigenous students to become physicians. Indigenous health curriculum, facilitated by nearby Indigenous community engagement, enables our medical students to learn about health and social issues that affect Indigenous populations and give culturally safe care. Thus, our students can help Indigenous patients, families and communities to help improve their health status while appreciating cultural elements in their care.
