Canada’s faculties of medicine commit to improving Indigenous health

August 15, 2019

The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada has approved a Joint Commitment to Action on Indigenous Health that will aim to train medical students to better serve Indigenous communities. AFMC Indigenous network chair Marcia Anderson said that the commitment was made in response to the TRC, and that she hopes it will bring consistency to “highly variable” Indigenous health initiatives at schools across the country. The commitment includes several action items related to relationships with Indigenous communities, admissions, the medical school environment, curriculum, and post-graduate education.
