Introduction to the Canadian Healthcare System

Introduction to the Canadian Healthcare System

The goal of this podcast is to leave you with a cursory understanding of the Canadian Healthcare system as we explore many of its facets, including: who supplies healthcare funding; which groups are responsible for setting guidelines and regulations; who is insured under Canadian Healthcare; what aspects of care are, and are not, covered; and the role of Private Insurance in Canadian Healthcare. This podcast was developed by Parker Vandermeer and Dr. Melanie Lewis. Parker is a third year medical student from the University of Alberta. Dr. Lewis is a general pediatrician and Associate Dean of Learner Advocacy and Wellness at the University of Alberta.
