—Dr. John Wotton

Canadian medical schools do not enrol representative numbers of Aboriginal or rural Canadians. At the same time, Aboriginal and rural communities face shortages of medical personnel and relatively poor health outcomes, compared to the rest of the country. Research suggests that efforts to train greater numbers of doctors from under-represented communities will have the added benefit of improving health services and outcomes in these communities.
