Welcome to the Indigenous Health Professions Program website.

The goals of the Indigenous Health Professions (IHP) Program are to train more Indigenous health professionals and to teach all future health professionals about the health needs of Indigenous peoples. The IHP Program has been developed through consultation and collaboration with Indigenous communities in Quebec, leaders of successful Indigenous Health programs at other Canadian universities, and other McGill departments and  programs.





Be health leaders in your communities! Learn more about the Eagle Spirit Science Futures, exposing Indigenous youth to the many levels of university life.
