“The Integration Of Cultural Safety Teaching Into an Undergraduate Medical Curriculum”

This fellowship explores the Indigenous concept of cultural safety as a framework to reimagine clinical encounters in a holistic and critical way. A key goal of the fellowship project is to integrate teachings about cultural safety and Indigenous ways of knowing into
the formal undergraduate medical curriculum to enhance therapeutic encounters between healthcare providers and their patients.
