Inclusive Pathways to Medical Professions - Dalhousie University
This presentation will be an introduction to the new cohort style Medical Sciences program called Inclusive Pathways to Medical Professions (IPMP) at Dalhousie University. The Indigenous student cohort offers wrap-around support and holistic approach based on the Medicine Wheel teachings to maximize student supports. Educators will be introduced to the IPMP program and able to participate in outreach activities that would be available to their students through an outreach visit by the Indigenous Medical Sciences cohort Advisor.
