Community of Support

The Community of Support program exists as a collaborative initiative with the goal of increasing the number of students that are Indigenous, Black, Filipino, Latin American, economically disadvantaged, non-traditional (ie mature students) or who self-identify with having a disability in Temerty Medicine’s MD program, and in medical school in general.

Being a member of the Community of Support will provide you with access to numerous opportunities including the Research Application Support Initiative (RASI):

  1. Providing information/workshops on how to create a good academic CV, professionalism in communicatingwith principal investigators and characteristics of a good referee.
  2. One-to-one mentorship to help them develop research CVs and apply for research roles, graduate applications, and applications for thesis.
  3. A limited number of paid research roles
