For some the most interesting part of this study period is the dissection lab.
This at home lab is like the others, not a mandatory part of the program. This lab in particular is a challenge as outlinted in the "DOING SCIENCE" outline. Having said that, read on and discover more about the intersteller traveller that is waiting for you just outside your door.
A hands on workshop with models and dissection in the Health Sciences Anatomy Lab. This included dissecting rats, examining sheep brains and goat hearts. Not for the faint of heart...which includes this author. But upon investigation this article best explains the benefits of dissection.
The goal of cultural safety is for all people to feel respected and safe when they interact with the health care system. Culturally safe health care services are free of racism and discrimination. People are supported to draw strengths from their identity, culture and community.

A medical doctor is a health professional who diagnoses and treats illness through medical care. Doctors provide a range of care across different specialties, including family medicine, surgery, internal medicine, psychiatry and more.
The pathway to becoming a licensed doctor takes at least 9 years. Individuals must first complete at least 90 credits of an undergraduate bachelor program prior to entering a four-year medical degree (MD) program. This is then followed by two to five years of residency training (depending on specialty).

The NMP has developed the Northern Pathways to Medicine Program (NP2M) for eligible students from under-represented populations whose long-term goal is admission to the NMP or other health professions programs in northern BC. The program consists of three main elements which aim to support the recipient to be competitive for application to medical school: 1) a longitudinal pre-medical enrichment program alongside their undergraduate degree, 2) formal mentorship from faculty of the NMP and UNBC, and 3) financial support.
