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.
The online application process for the 2023 Sandra Banner Student Award for Leadership (SBSAL) is now open.
Interested students and residents enrolled full-time in a Canadian medical education program and residing in Canada as Canadian citizens or landed immigrants are eligible to apply using the submission form on the CaRMS website. Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2022 at 17:00 ET.
The purpose of the SBSAL is to encourage the development of future leaders in medicine through public recognition and financial support of leadership activities. It is awarded annually to one undergraduate medical student and one postgraduate medical trainee demonstrating an interest in and an aptitude for leadership. The award was established in 2013 by the CaRMS Board of Directors in recognition of the 29 years of leadership Sandra Banner provided to CaRMS.
Learn more about the eligibility criteria and how to apply on the CaRMS website, and please share this information with your friends and colleagues to help CaRMS recognize young leaders in the Canadian medical education community.
