Student-led McGill camp aims to encourage youth from underrepresented groups to consider careers in the health professions
At McGill, the Faculty of Medicine does outreach to increase the number of applicants from underrepresented groups, including from Indigenous and Black communities and from rural and low-income backgrounds. Every year since 2009, McGill has invited high school students from underrepresented groups to their Explore! Careers in Health Camp. The student-led bilingual camp helps them learn about medicine, nursing, dentistry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language therapy, genetics and pharmacology.
