This initiative supports non-elected members to attend CFMS meetings with the goals of fostering greater member awareness of CFMS structure and function, promoting increased interest in the CFMS and facilitating increased participation in CFMS activities. The application process is competitive and the CFMS routinely receives a far greater number of applications than the number of funded spots available. Applicants are selected based solely on the merits of their written application as judged by a selection committee.

For full application details please see the attached document. Applications are due by February 15, 2016 and should be emailed to Emily Hodgson, Quebec Regional Representative, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

La FEMC et Gestion financière MD ont mis des fonds de côté pour l’année 2015-2016 afin de fournir une assistance financière pour des étudiants en medicine membres de la FEMC qui souhaiteraient assister à notre Assemblée générale de printemps, tenue du 15 au 16 avril 2016 à Montréal, Québec.

Cette initiative aide des membres non élus à assister à des rencontres de la FEMC dans le but d’accroître leur connaissance de la structure et des multiples fonctions de notre organisation en plus d’augmenter l’intérêt de nos membres à participer à nos activités. Le processus d’application est compétitif et la FEMC reçoit souvent beaucoup plus d’applications que le nombre de places qu’elle peut financer. Les candidats sont sélectionnés seulement au mérite de leur application écrite telle qu’évaluée par un comité de selection.

Pour tous les details au sujet du processus d’application, veuillez vous référer au document suivant. La date limite pour soumettre une application est le 15 février 2016.

Six Things Medical Students Should Question

The Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) and Fédération médicale étudiante du Québec (FMEQ), who together represent all medical students in Canada, today released a list of 'Six Things Medical Students Should Question' as part ofChoosing Wisely Canada. The list identifies six targeted, evidence-based recommendations that can support conversations about what care is really necessary.

The CFMS/FMEQ list identifies the following six recommendations:

  1. Don't suggest ordering the most invasive test before considering other less invasive options.
  2. Don't suggest a test, treatment, or procedure that will not change the patient's clinical course.
  3. Don't hesitate to ask for clarification on tests, treatments, or procedures that you believe may be ordered inappropriately.
  4. Don't miss the opportunity to initiate conversations with patients about whether a test, treatment or procedure is necessary.
  5. Don't suggest ordering tests or performing procedures for the sole purpose of gaining personal clinical experience.
  6. Don't suggest ordering tests or treatments pre-emptively for the sole purpose of anticipating what your supervisor would want.
