McMaster University’s Undergraduate Medical Program is committed to the principles of equity, diversity, inclusion and social justice in all that we do. We strive to:
- Recruit students, faculty, and staff that reflect the diversity of our society
- Maintain an environment of equity and respect where everyone can work and learn free of discrimination
- Assure that our curriculum prepares our graduates to meet the needs of the diverse communities they will serve in their careers
The Undergraduate MD Program’s work in this area is supported by McMaster University’s full commitment to principles and programs for equity and diversity as demonstrated by the McMaster University Statement on Building an Inclusive Community with a Shared Purpose:
The Community of Support program is a collaborative initiative to increase the number of students who are Indigenous, Black, Filipino, or economically disadvantaged in the University of Toronto MD program and in medical schools generally. Being a member of the Community of Support will provide you with access to a variety of opportunities. More information can be found on the Community of Support webpage.
The McMaster Undergraduate Medical Education Program is a Community of Support partner.
