“Through the development of a simulation experience, Dr. Amanda Sauvé, a Métis family medicine resident at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, is providing medical students and residents with a glimpse into what it is like to walk in the shoes of an Indigenous Person in Canada.

Stand Up for Indigenous Health is an Indigenous-specific offering of Stand Up for Health – an immersive simulation that allows medical trainees and other health professionals to gain a better understanding of the social determinants of health, through experiential learning. Leveraging the technology of a mobile app, participants are placed in the role of Canadians living in poverty and must interact, make choices, and solve challenges within their given set of circumstances.”
