  • Halifax Health - Family Medicine Residency Program (FMRP) values diversity issues in the education and training of our residents. In keeping with our commitment to graduate exceptionally qualified, well-rounded physicians, we feel that exposure to, and training in diversity issues in healthcare is very important. In addition to providing a Health Disparities Area of Concentration, the program offers a series of lectures on culturally responsive healthcare, social determinants of health and anti-racism efforts in healthcare.

    These conferences provide training experiences that explore the influence of cultural factors on medical beliefs and practices, and the effects of personal cultural background on staff relationships and physician-patient interactions. Our community medicine elective provides residents the opportunity to do outreach with underserved groups in our area and residents are given the chance to do QI projects relevant to the underserved populations in our community. As a program, we stand firmly against racism and pledge to work to dismantle inequities in healthcare and society in general.

    In our efforts to continue to develop these aspects of our program, we offer 1-2 rotation scholarships to students from underrepresented groups per year and welcome any prospective residents who have an interest in these areas to consider applying. Our program embraces, accepts and promotes diversity with regard to cultural background, sexual orientation, faith background and other social/cultural identities. We strongly encourage students from under-represented groups to apply.
