This photograph was taken at the Real Talks medical panel in Oshawa, Ontario on March 27th, 2019.
Conceptually, Black Physicians of Tomorrow (BPT) was created as the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) chapter of the University of Toronto's - Community of Support (COS) initiative.
While Ontario Tech University is now the presiding title over the former University of Ontario Institute of Technology, our Oshawa COS Chapter will not undergo any name changes.
Along with several other chapters across the province, BPT also maintains its presence in supporting black undergraduate students who are interested in the broad scope of medicine. The COS initiative, spearheaded by Ike Okafur of the University of Toronto's Faculty of Medicine, is a mandate to increase the number of black health practitioners in Ontario, Canada.
