The Toronto Political Advocacy Committee (TPAC) is led by a group of University of Toronto medical students passionate about making a difference in their city. We advocate for evidence-based solutions to healthcare injustices in the City of Toronto by training medical students on how to conduct advocacy, as well as performing that advocacy on a longitudinal basis with community partners. We strive for a Toronto where everyone has equitable access to healthcare, and we hope to train future physicians to become long-term advocates for these causes.
We tackle healthcare injustices in the City of Toronto using evidence-informed advocacy and community partnership, creating sustainable and long-term change by equipping medical students with the advocacy skills they need to make an impact in their community.
We believe all Torontonians should have equitable access to healthcare. So, we advocate in partnership with community organizations to improve Toronto’s healthcare system. Our advocacy strategies are evidence-informed and centered around local community partnerships.
We know that medical students and physicians have a powerful voice within the healthcare system. So, we aim to educate and train medical students about how to use advocacy to improve healthcare access and equity in their communities, with the goal of long-term and sustainable action by physicians.
