Launched in 2008, the Quebec First Nations and Inuit Faculties of Medicine Program (QFNIFMP) supports First Nations and Inuit applicants who want to study medicine through a guidance structure that facilitates their admission and integration throughout their university career.

Study Medicine

The Program is open to all First Nations and Inuit applicants in Quebec who are interested in studying medicine in Quebec, no matter their age or place of residence, provided they meet the minimum requirements.



Every year, future physicians participate in cultural awareness activities and have an opportunity to enhance their career path  through internships in First Nations and Inuit communities in Quebec.
