Our Journey to Canada

Meet Selam Ogbalidet, a proud Eritrean-Canadian. Selam is a third-year medical student, at the University of Ottawa, who is interested in pursuing a career in surgery and is excited to break barriers in medicine. Selam has degrees in Health Sciences (BHSc) and Psychology & Gerontology (Honours BA), both from the University of Ottawa. Selam is passionate about reforming the dermatology curriculum and making it more inclusive of various skin colours. To do her part to advocate for increased representation within and accessibility to the medical profession, Selam started @1stGenMD on Instagram to share tips and tricks with 1st generation, Black, and/or non-traditional medical school applicants.
