Transformation, Inspiration and Guidance: Celebrating 20 Years of Indigenous Excellence in Medicine
May 17, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The Faculty of Medicine Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion invites you to join us for a conversation with James Andrew, a member of Lil’wat Nation’s Mount Currie Band and the Associate Director of Indigenous Initiatives at the Faculty of Medicine.
In this this Indigenous Speakers Series session we will learn about the work and leadership of James Andrew who has been a source of inspiration and guidance in helping to create and transform the UBC Faculty of Medicine’s Indigenous MD Admissions Pathway. In 2022, the Faculty of Medicine community celebrated 20 years of the Pathway as well as the Indigenous Family Medicine Residency Program, and over this time period more than 120 Indigenous doctors have graduated and are now serving communities across the province as family doctors, surgeons, pediatricians and more.
