Breaking barriers between Cree patients and non-aboriginal doctors


A new partnership between the CSSS des Premières Nations du Québec et Labrador, Native friendship centres and Quebec medical schools is allowing medical students from McGill and Université de Montréal to live and work in Native communities across the province for four week periods. The students are there to gain an enhanced understanding of aboriginal culture as it relates to medical practice.
