Eagle Spirit Academy
The Eagle Spirit Academy is a platform to encourage and support Indigenous youth in pursuing studies and careers in health and science at McGill University. We offer an annual Eagle Spirit Camp, hands-on workshops and learning opportunities, mentoring support and information for students, parents and educators.
For some Indigenous youth, the Eagle Spirit Camp gives them a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience life as a medical or health student. As we strive to train more Indigenous health professionals at McGill, we hope this opportunity will excite them to pursue their studies and a career in health care. An initiative like the Eagle Spirit Camp is just enough to start them down that road and our upcoming Indigenous Health Professions Program is designed to support students through the application process, during their studies and onto graduation" - Dr. Kent Saylor, Mohawk Pediatrician, Director of Indigenous Health Professions Program at McGill University
