About the CFMSThe CFMS is an organization representing over 8,000 medical students from 15 Canadian medical student societies from coast to coast. We represent medical students to the public, to the federal government, and to national and international medical organizations.
CMAJ is seeking medical students to peer review and help edit the Student Humanities Blog (http://cmajblogs.com/category/student-humanities-blog/). Peer reviewers will receive support and training from the CMAJ Editor, Humanities and the CMAJ Student Humanities Blog Editor. These are volunteer positions presenting the opportunity to learn about the editing process.
The blog, which is run in conjunction with the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS), was created to provide a venue for high quality student work concerning the medical humanities. Submissions sought have included poetry, essays, critiques, reviews (films, novels, theatre, etc.), interviews (profiles or conversations), reflective pieces, event reports, graphic medicine and visual art pertaining to the medical humanities. Since its launch, a diverse selection of quality student work has been published on the CMAJ blog.
CMAJ looks forward to continuing to foster conversation about the medical humanities this upcoming year and is seeking dedicated individuals to join the peer review team for the Student Humanities Blog.
The deadline to apply is November 9, 2015 at 11:59. To apply, please send a CV (maximum 3 pages) and the application form to Teresa Li, editor of the english version of the blog at [email protected].
