The report claims that the Canadian health-care system perpetuates ‘structural violence’ on marginalized people.

An internal report by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada is proposing a new model that would put the focus on social justice before medical expertise as part of a “vision for the future of medicine.”

The Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Interim Report, which was shared on social media, was written by Dr. Ritika Goel, a family physician at the University of Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital Academic Family Health Team.
The report claims that the health-care system perpetuates “structural violence” on marginalized people.

“A new model of CanMEDS would seek to centre values such as anti-oppression, anti-racism, and social justice rather than medical expertise,” it says.
