Collection of Welcome Letters to future medical students from marginalized groups

26 September 2020

IFMSA-Quebec worked on a wonderful project for the succession of future medical students. Here is what they posted on their Facebook page.

“Entering medical school can be stressful, given all the adaptations that need to be made. It is not always easy, especially when you have a feeling of not belonging. This feeling can be further amplified if you do not see yourself in your peers. Therefore, the goal of this project is to offer new medical students from under-represented communities welcome letters that are tailored to their community. As these letters come from medical students to new medical students, we wish for you to see yourself in one of these people and to connect with their story. Within these letters, you will find their personal story, encouragement and advice that can help you on your own journey. We want you to know that you are not alone and many others have gone through a similar path.”

Here is the collection:
