Welcome to MedExplore!
Medexplore is a program run out of the Global Health Office at Queen’s University that seeks to provide opportunities for skill development, networking, and career exposure, to under-represented populations in health care professions so they can make informed educational and career decisions.
Medexplore targets a population of students who have not yet reached their full potential. Barriers they face include fewer opportunities of exposure and supports that can help them do so.
Numerous studies have shown that students from these backgrounds would be more likely to service the areas of health care currently experiences shortage in areas of need, such as primary care. These students already possess the cultural understanding that will allow quality patient-centered care to be continued to be delivered in these communities and are an asset to the Canadian health care system.
