UofTMed Alum: Advocacy, Stigma and 20 Years of the Black Medical Students Association

When I started medical school in 1997, I was one of three black students in my class of 270. We made up just over one per cent of the medical school class, and when you compared that to the percentage of Black people in Toronto (7.5 per cent), it was very disproportionate. And U of T was higher than most other medical schools. I felt we should do something. We recognized we were a marginalized group, and we wanted to advocate for ourselves and others coming up behind us. So we started U of T’s Black Medical Students Association in 1999 — 20 years ago now.
