Welcome to the McMaster University MD Program Diversity & Engagement pages!
My name is Albina Veltman and I am the Inaugural Diversity & Engagement Chair for the Undergraduate MD Program at McMaster. In this role, I am responsible for ensuring that diversity and inclusivity/community engagement issues are addressed appropriately by the Undergraduate MD Program (i.e. curriculum, admissions, community engagement/pipeline programs, and student experience). The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility and Success (IDEAS) Committee (and its various subcommittees) assist in completing this work. The IDEAS Committee consists of representatives from the Undergraduate MD Program, McMaster University programs/services, medical students, and various community organizations/agencies. Please feel free to read the Terms of Reference for the IDEAS Committee here.
Dr. Albina Veltman,
Undergraduate MD Program Diversity & Engagement Chair
