This panel discussion promises a comprehensive review of research findings, an exploration of future goals, and a look at the potential positive impact on improving patient care.

The conversation kicks off with an insightful discussion on why it is imperative to consider disability as a central aspect of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts. Our panelists will delve into the expansive reach of disability, spanning across multiple marginalized identities and lived experiences. Through engaging dialogue, we will address the evolution of disability inclusion in medical education in Canada, shedding light on significant developments and research findings.

The discussion will not only highlight the current “state of affairs” but also envision a “reimagined” future for inclusive medical education in Canada. Panelists will share their perspectives on what they hope to see in terms of advancements in medical education, patient care, and ongoing diversity initiatives.

To ensure an interactive and engaging experience, the session will conclude with a Q&A session with the audience. We invite questions from the audience and encourage a dynamic exchange of ideas and insights.
