The Office of Indigenous Medical Education is home to the Faculty of Medicine curricular co­-leads in Indigenous Health Education, an Elder, and the MD Program Indigenous Peoples' Program Coordinator. This office provides a culturally safe space within the MD Program and is working to advance Indigenous community engagement and supports.

The office is also working to incorporate Indigenous teachings regarding medicine for all students to improve the discourse in Indigenous Medical Education. Students can come to the office to discuss, ask questions, or participate in cultural teachings. The Indigenous Peoples' Program Coordinator is working to develop a comprehensive Aboriginal community outreach program, and provides support to current Indigenous medical students and to other students within the faculty who are hoping to learn more about Indigenous people and Indigenous concepts of health and healing.
