LBGTQ2S+ POC - UBC Application Help

Recommended Posts

If you self-identify as a BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ and want some help with your UBC Med application for the 2020-2021 cycle, PLEASE PM me! I’m a medical student and want to help folks who may be using this forum and aren’t able to access other resources. I am willing to offer help *for free*. I can help with your NAQ and/or answer any questions you may have about your application. 

If you aren’t a POC, but self-identify as trans* or non-binary/gender-diverse, please reach out as well!!

The reason why I’m doing this is that LGBTQ2S+ BIPOC are not represented in medicine and face intersectional barriers  that their peers don’t. This is my way to help others who may not have the resources for application support. There were only 7 trans/non-binary applicants out of 2398 in the 2018/2019 cycle, and only 1 was accepted/matriculated to UBC in the 2023 and 2021 years. 

All communication can be through confidential and private means (if you’d like).

For those who are starting MD2024, there’s an LGBTQ2S+ Mentorship Group (student-run with invited Physician mentors) that you’ll be able to join. It is a confidential space for participants and you’re able to connect with other queer folk in medicine.

(You should get the details in August)
