Join the IPAC Team
The Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada (IPAC) provides knowledge for communities, national Indigenous organizations and health care providers, advocates for Indigenous peoples’ health, and acts as a support mechanism for Indigenous physicians, residents and students. We believe in elevating the voices of our Indigenous physician leaders to greater spheres of influence to impact system-level change for the care of Indigenous people. We strive to create a work culture that values collaboration, wellness, and cultural safety.
IPAC is an Indigenous national organization with non-profit and charity status. We work with Elders and Knowledge Keepers and value Indigenous ways of knowing, learning, and doing. We are currently in a significant growth phase as we add three new members to our team. This is an exciting time as we now have the resources to better respond to the expressed needs of our membership. Our 2021/2022 activities include onboarding and supporting our new team members, developing a national mentorship program, creating a framework for physician wellness and joy in work, continuing our work in anti-Indigenous racism in medical education and healthcare systems, supporting student-led initiatives, and coordinating networking and continuing education events like PRIDoC 2022.
