McMaster’s Faculty of Health Sciences has a long history of distinguished Indigenous alumni who have gone on to be leaders within Indigenous health and many, like Dr. Cornelia Wieman, continue to work with ISHS to mentor and support the next generation of health professionals, researchers and scholars.  

The ISHS office wants to continue to acknowledge the accomplished First Nations, Inuit and Métis graduates of health science programs at McMaster. If you are an Indigenous or a non-Indigenous ally with a health sciences degree or diploma we want you to be part of our Alumni Circle.  Click here to sign up!

As a member of the circle you will receive updates on events/ speakers/ funding opportunities; stay linked with your graduating class; establish and expand professional networks, have an opportunity to mentor current and incoming students; and, be highlighted on the ISHS web site Alumni Circle page. (Please note, all personal coordinates will be kept confidential). The web site will show: Name, Indigenous affiliation, graduating year and degree/diploma, current postgraduate program or occupation, final thoughts, picture (if supplied) and if available to mentor. (You may be removed by request at anytime).
