Dal to offer comprehensive Indigenous health education through Wije’winen Health Centre

Dalhousie University‚Äôs Department of Family Medicine has announced that it will be offering comprehensive Indigenous health education through the new Wije’winen Health Centre. The centre will provide medical students and residents with a comprehensive Indigenous health education, ensuring that learners receive a baseline background of knowledge before beginning work at the clinic. “The complex and unique needs of urban Indigenous people are managed as interprofessional teams hence our learners need to learn from the allied health professionals in the centre, whether it be nurse practitioners, social workers, Elders, or community navigators,” said Dal Family Medicine department head Dr Kath Stringer. “They are all part of that education.”
