Let's Diversify Healthcare! (BAP-MAC)

We are the Black Aspiring Physicians of McMaster, BAP-MAC (BAP-MAC Website)! We ultimately aim to diversify the Canadian healthcare space by increasing the representation of Black physicians and allied health professionals. We support, empower, and advocate for healthcare aspiring Black undergraduate students. We aim to serve as a resource hub for marginalized Black youths pursuing medicine and other allied healthcare professions through key initiatives and student opportunities.

Mission Statement: Our Mission is to Empower Today’s Black Healthcare Aspiring Students with the Tools to Thrive as Tomorrow’s Black Healthcare Professionals and Leaders.

We support, empower, and connect Black healthcare aspiring students to promote success. We provide students with skill development opportunities and resources crucial to their pursuit of a healthcare career.

BAP-MAC events include:

  • iRISE Conference: Annual healthcare conference integrating medicine and health leadership topics in conversations about diversity and health inequities in healthcare delivery and research. Annually, welcome over 100 students.

  • Research Information Night: Our workshop provides students the opportunity to learn from expert speakers in the field of research and receive tips on how to secure research positions

  • Black Health Talk: The Black health chat brings together students to have insightful discussions on various health issues that disproportionately affect the black community. A keynote speaker moderates this event, followed by a large group discussion.

  • MCAT Experience: An event for past medical college admission test (MCAT) writers to dispel myths share tips and strategies to become successful MCAT exam takers.

Annually, BAP-MAC serves hundred of students and spends several thousand on program development and event planning! The iRISE conference requires the greatest financial investement ($7000 annual budget).
