The International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) invites you to join us for our inaugural Virtual Forum! Join us December 2-3 and 5-6 as we host workshops, ignite talks, posters, lightning talks, roundtable discussions and more. Borders come in all forms, from geo-political to socio-economic, from online to face to face, and from diversity to experience levels. This forum will feature conversations that showcase the borders but give actionable suggestions on how to remove them and build community. The third of our four ignite speakers is Erik Brodt from the Oregon Health & Science University in the United States. He will present Accelerating Possibilities for American Indians & Alaska Natives in US-MD Granting Medical Schools on Tuesday, December 6, 2022.
Accelerating Possibilities for American Indians & Alaska Natives in US-MD Granting Medical Schools

Presented on Tuesday, December 6, 2022
The Northwest Native American Center of Excellence (NNACoE) aims to amplify Indigenous voices in the health workforce. Native Americans live sicker and die younger than any other group of people in America, and are underrepresented in the health professions. We believe in a new generation of Native American health leaders who hold the potential and the solutions to improve health care for all.
