The CFMS and MD Financial Management have set aside funds for the 2015-2016 academic year to provide financial assistance for CFMS member medical students who wish to attend our Spring General Meeting, held April 15-16, 2016 in Montreal, Quebec.
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.

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.

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

Le Sondage national de santé et de bien-être de la FEMC-FMEQ sera lancé le 23 novembre, alors surveillez vos messages et songez à y participer.
La FEMC et la FMEQ amassent des données sur les habitudes de vie des étudiants dans chacune des facultés de médecine du pays, afin de développer et de mettre de l’avant des programmes pour améliorer la santé des étudiants en médecine.
Pour vous remercier de votre participation, chaque participant aura la chance de gagner l’un des deux iPads qui seront tirés au hasard à la fin de l’étude. De plus, la faculté de médecine avec le plus haut taux de participation recevra un chèque de 1000$ pour chaque promotion en médecine (un total de 3000$ ou 4000$, selon l’école) à encaisser pour leur fonds de bal de finissants.
Nous vous remercions à l’avance pour votre temps et attention à l’égard de cet important projet. Au nom de la CFMS, de la FMEQ et de l’ensemble des étudiants en médecine du Canada qui bénéficieront de votre participation à ce sondage, merci.
