MedLINCs Summer Elective Program

MedLINCs is a four-week summer elective program through Schulich Medicine Distributed Education that places medical students with the Chippewas of Nawash community in the Grey-Bruce region followed by a summer clinical opportunity in the region.

First and second-year medical students engage youth in the communities with the aim of encouraging more young people to pursue post-secondary education in health-related fields. 

In collaboration with the Chippewas of Nawash Community Health Centre, programming incorporates health care focused activities, field trips and traditional summer camp fun including casting, suturing, mock disasters, wilderness first aid, Georgian College and Western Mini-tours.
