About the CFMSThe CFMS is an organization representing over 8,000 medical students from 14 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.
The CFMS and MD Financial Management want to recognize some of the passionate, dedicated and caring medical student leaders across Canada who have made innovative contributions to their schools and communities.
We broadly define leadership as accomplishments as a leader, collaborator, communicator, scholar, professional and/or health advocate.
In recognition of their achievements, one student from each of the 15 member schools of the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) will receive a Medical Student Leadership Award. This award consists of:
A certificate of recognition
A cash prize of $2000
Subsidized travel to the awards reception at the CFMS Spring General Meeting in Niagara Falls on April 11-13th, 2019
