Main Article Content
As an immigrant who grew up in the inner-city Toronto and Hamilton community to a low-income family this article highlights some of the challenges faced by me and countless other students living in these communities on their route to pursuing a career in medicine. While becoming a physician requires academic excellence, growing up in these circumstances is filled with challenges that extend far beyond the classroom. More specifically; a lack of experience, mentorship, and financial resources disadvantage marginalized student’s medical school applications and subsequently prevent them from pursuing a career as a physician in both Canada and abroad.
