"It’s like you sit in a classroom with a research paper and the person who wrote the paper is the professor in front of you. That kind of experience you don’t get at many universities.”

'When you grow up not knowing or seeing a single doctor of colour ... it makes you question why things are the way they are'

The Faculty of Medicine’s Black Student Application Program (BSAP), which began in 2017, provides a more culturally safe admission pathway for Black students to medical school. Modelled on a similar pathway for Indigenous students, BSAP welcomed its first cohort in September.
Now, after one term in U of T’s MD program, Faculty of Medicine writer Liam Mitchell spoke with two students who participated in BSAP – Chantal Phillips and Semir Bulle – to discuss their experiences and reflections on why BSAP matters.

Faculty of Medicine program opens opportunities to Black MD students

Growing up, Chantal Phillips was not sure whether medical school was for her. It wasn’t because she wasn’t interested, but because she couldn’t see anyone like herself practising medicine.
Now in her first year of the MD program at the University of Toronto, she reflected on how race and poverty made medical school seem unattainable at a recent public consultation session on the Black Student Application Program (BSAP). The program launched in early 2017 and welcomed its first cohort this fall.

U of T chapter of National Society of Black Engineers to host first student-run Black hackathon in GTA

Kyra Stephen, a Woodsworth College student in her last year of computer science, loves hackathons. They're a chance to solve a challenge under pressure, meet new people and show an A-list of tech companies what you can do. There was only one downside: She was often the only Black person in the room.


“Coming into U of T with an economics mindset and leaving with a sociology, political science and economics background changed my life. They all tackle global poverty, aid and development, but from very different schools of thought."

The college system

All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the downtown Toronto (St. George) campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
