Medical education and the native Canadian: an example of mutual symbiosis.

Description: 

To broaden the scope of medical education, two new endeavours were instituted at Queen's University in the fall of 1962 by the Departments of Preventive Medicine and Pediatrics - a child health program and a community medicine rotation. There still remained two major gaps: a paucity of exposure to the school-age child and no experience with populations demonstrating ethnic and cultural differences, in particular the native Canadian. Therefore, a school health program for the children on the Tyendinaga Indian Reserve was begun in 1964.
