The Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) is deeply disheartened by the decision made by the Supreme Court of the United States on June 24th in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which overturns 50 years of entrenched reproductive rights. As stated by the World Health Organization, reproductive rights are human rights and are imperative to the autonomy of the bodies and lives of people who are able to get pregnant. Abortions are healthcare, and we will always advocate for universal access to healthcare. This is an area we have advocated for numerous times, most recently to the Federal and Provincial governments at the National Day of Action on Universal Access to Contraception this past May.
Nominations are now being accepted for the CFMS Board of Directors By-Election at the Special General Meeting August 7th, 2022.
In 2019, the Atlantic Task Force: Physician Recruitment and Retention Project was initiated by medical students from the Atlantic region. Medical students from Memorial University, Dalhousie University, and Université de Sherbrooke collaborated to create this toolkit. The objective of this toolkit is to provide physician recruiters, health authorities, policy makers, students, and other stakeholders with a medical student-informed guide about the current recruitment and retention models of each of the Atlantic provinces and suggested action plans for future directions. This initiative will help to foster more critical discussion and action plans with physicians and medical trainees to collaborate towards ameliorating the healthcare systems of the Atlantic provinces of Canada.
