Type: 
Discussion & Awareness

We are a community of medical students brought together to recognize and advocate for social accountability as it relates to the socioeconomic inequity and underrepresentation seen in Canadian medicine and the medical community. We call for and work towards informed and evidence-based action to address these disparities, including but not limited to: improved mentorship for students from low socioeconomic status (LSES) backgrounds, financial aid to help students overcome financial barriers in school applications and education, and social accountability in medical school admissions and education. We welcome all with or without lived experiences in LSES backgrounds.
