Upcoming Mentorship Events

In-Person on Campus School Mentorship Events

Join IPAC to share dinner followed by an evening of mentorship at your local medical school. You do not need to be a member to attend & we will gladly provide info on who we are at IPAC, what we do & how you can benefit from joining us. Connect with fellow Indigenous medical learners & physicians to grow your network & share the spirit of medical education. Dates and link to register below.

Online CaRMS Panels East and West

Current residents & fellows will share their own experience with CaRMS, what they would do differently, which advice they have for you & how you can successfully navigate this process to continue your medical education journey. A question & answer session will follow once panelists have shared their experiences. Dates and link to register below.
