Apply to the CMPA Equity Scholarship for the International Congress on Academic Medicine (ICAM)

CMPA is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) and recognizes the systemic barriers and inequities, and socioeconomic challenges that potential ICAM participants who are underrepresented may face. As such, we are taking steps to help increase the ability of individuals from equity-deserving groups who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, or racialized to contribute their research and knowledge to the healthcare field.

To this aim, CMPA has introduced an Equity Scholarship to assist physicians and physician trainees that self-identify as Black, Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) or racialized participants, to attend the 2024 International Congress on Academic Medicine (ICAM).
