Medical student Carly McLellan inspired by Health Career Quest Summer Camp

From camper to medical student

The summer before she went into Grade 12, Carly McLellan attended the Health Career Quest Summer Camp at the U of M. Now she is studying medicine.

“That camp changed my life,” says McLellan, a Cree Métis Access Professional Health Program (PHP) student from Thompson, Man. who went on to work at the camp as a counsellor, and then as a coordinator. “It brings Northern Indigenous youth into the university to explore health careers. I met an Indigenous medical student and realized I could do it too. I always wanted to go to university. I saw the path. I decided to do it.”
