Entrepreneurial McGill medical students reach out to high school students in lower socioeconomic neighbourhoods

For years, Canadian medical schools have been working hard to ensure the next generation of doctors better reflects the diversity of the country’s population.  Numerous efforts are underway to recruit from traditionally underrepresented populations including Indigenous students, black students and students from lower socioeconomic status backgrounds. This diversity is excellent news for Canadians because health care providers from a wide range of backgrounds and life experiences are better able to understand the needs, concerns and barriers to care experienced by some of their patients.
