Indigenous Student Resources

Indigenous Student Resources

First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) people have a long tradition of caring for the ill and helping people stay well, yet the shortage of health care professionals is particularly evident in rural and FNMI communities across Canada.

The Faculty of Health Sciences' commitment to FNMI students remains a central feature of its programming. Support services are offered to FNMI students in all programs in the Faculty of Health Sciences.

We can help you access:

  • Elders
  • Advisors
  • Tutors
  • Mentors
  • Scholarship and funding opportunities
  • Personal support and counselling

Find the support you need to succeed and discover an exciting career in health care.
