What We've Heard

A medical school built by the community, for the community

“Ask the communities about their vision for primary care and follow their priorities.”

“My hope is that it will not only improve the health of British Columbians but will also set a standard to be followed not only within Canada but worldwide.”

“I wish to be a student at the school, hoping to be one of the first graduates of the school. I then want to actually carry out the goal of serving rural communities ESPECIALLY Indigenous ones. I’ll even sign a 10-year contract that says I can only work rural to ensure my admission into the school. I will do whatever it takes to get a seat.”

“We need every course to have Indigenous content. We need to raise the bar.”
