On the evening of Monday, September 11, the McGill University Faculty of Medicine’s recently created Indigenous Health Professions Program (IHPP) held an inaugural welcome dinner at Thompson House to kick-off the new academic year for Indigenous students studying in health care-related disciplines at the University. “Very often Indigenous students feel alone when they come to a university setting,” explains Dr. Kent Saylor, Director of the Indigenous Health Professions Program at McGill. “The student welcoming event is a great way to introduce them to our program, introduce them to each other and to show them that they are important to us. It is easy to get lost in a large institution such as McGill. We want to show the students they are important and we will do everything we can to help them succeed throughout their time at McGill.”
