In order to understand who we are and where we are going, it is important to know where we come from.
The Institute of Health Sciences Education(IHSE) is the first of its kind in Canada, moving beyond traditional departmental lines and disciplinary boundaries to create new knowledge, enable capacity-building and promote knowledge translation.
McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka, which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations.
We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
