Overview:

Over the last year in Canada, we have seen increased discussion on the experiences of people of colour in various contexts. Recent research has begun to explore the experiences of students of colour in physical therapy programs. However, our study is the first to use an intersectional approach to explore the experiences of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour) PT students in Canada. In adopting this approach, we consider how  race interacts with disability, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender, and any other identities to contribute to the students’ experiences. During this session, we will talk about how our research guides the development of more inclusive spaces in PT education.

 

Speakers:

Christine Wang, Amanda Campbell, Jennifer Chan, and Laura Baikie (all she/her) are a group of final year McGill Physiotherapy students conducting a research project under the supervision of Drs. Shaun Cleaver, Matthew Hunt, and Stephanie Nixon. These students share a common interest in equity, diversity, and inclusion among professional health care environments.
