The article reports on a new curriculum framework for aboriginal people in Canada, developed by the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada in collaboration with the Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada, as of June 2008. The framework is designed to educate students about the continuing impact of colonization on the health of indigenous peoples. It also intends to help create a more culturally safe environment at the country's 17 medical schools. According to the report, the curriculum framework comes three years after the deans of Canada's medical schools agreed that the initiative was needed to help educate students and medical faculty.
