Multi-Subspecialty Education for low-Resource Settings (MSERS)

The Multi-Subspecialty Education for Low-Resource Settings (MSERS) series confronts the unique health education challenges in Ontario’s Indigenous Communities. Topics are identified by nurses, physicians, and indigenous health leaders who work within the 133 First Nation communities across Ontario. The MSERS series focuses on locally relevant topics, presented by content leaders in the health care fields across the entire range of medical subspecialties.
