Partnering to Indigenize health sciences education
Share this story

Training health-care professionals in Indigenous ways of knowing is critical to supporting Indigenous patients. To create a safe space where Indigenous students and learners can participate in conversations about Indigenous health sciences education, McMaster University established the Indigenous Health Learning Lodge (IHLL) in partnership with Indigenous community members. 

The IHLL acts as a campus hub for Indigenous students, learners, faculty, staff and Traditional Knowledge Helpers to discuss a path forward in Indigenizing health sciences training and curriculum development.  

The lodge also provides space for non-Indigenous health sciences students to learn more about the impacts of colonization, reconciliation, human rights, anti-racism and cultural safety concerning Indigenous health and well-being.
