This practicum will be a six-week 3 credit supervised experience in one of three remote northern Saskatchewan communities. Supervision will be provided by a local field preceptor and the Global Health Certificate Program Director (a University of Saskatchewan faculty member). Students will have an orientation to the northern experience and a debriefing opportunity upon their return. Possible topics for the orientation include: Aboriginal and northern health and social issues, history of Aboriginal-European relations with emphasis on treaties; recent history, the reserve system, residential schools and current relations; traditional beliefs, traditional healing, the Medicine Wheel; current social problems, substance abuse; and research with Indigenous Peoples. The purpose of this orientation is to engage students in critical thinking about indigenous issues in preparation for their experience in the north.
