Message from the Chair
The National Consortium for Indigenous Medical Education is an important step towards addressing anti-Indigenous racism in medical education and health care. Training physicians who can practice medicine in ways that meet the needs of Indigenous Peoples requires Indigenous leadership, learning environments that are free of racism, and assessment processes that ensure physicians have anti-racism and cultural safety knowledge and skills. This will require widespread structural reforms, and we are committed to working with all partners to implement Indigenous-led solutions in health care education and service delivery.
– Dr. Marcia Anderson, Chair, NCIME
We support national medical education organizations in fulfilling their responsibilities to respond to the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the Inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Indigenous Medical Education.
The NCIME was formed to implement Indigenous-led work streams that will transform Indigenous medical education and contribute to the delivery of culturally safe care.
