Student Led

We encourage you to join as a student member and be part of the IPAC family. Medical students play a critical role in our work; from serving on the IPAC board, to being active members on subcommittees, to implementing their own initiatives. We value the voices of our students.

The TRC Calls to Action 23 & 24 Medical School Report Card

The idea for this project was conceived by the medical students at our 2019 IPAC National Mentorship Forum and AGM in St. John’s Newfoundland and brought to life by a small group of volunteer students with the support of IPAC staff and board members. Indigenous medical students across the country are given the opportunity each year to provide feedback on how they feel their schools are implementing the TRC’s 23/24 Calls to Action. In this way, students can help schools identify what they are doing well and how they still need to improve. The results are collected and analyzed, and each school receives a report card of the collated and anonyzed feedback from their own students. Since September 14, 2020, medical schools have received a report card with recommendations on how to better implement the TRC’s 23/24 Calls to Action, with the ultimate goal being reconciliation and closing the healthcare gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

The student volunteers who began this project have mentored new students to carry on the project. The results of the 2021/22 have been released and the results of the 2022/23 survey will be released soon. Those involved are committed to repeating the survey annually, so that the medical schools will continue to have the opportunity to hear the voices of Indigenous students.
