CFMS - CPAMD Humanitarian Award
The CFMS and CPAMD want to recognize a medical student who exemplifies leadership and humanitarian contributions, going above and beyond as an aspiring medical professional. A noteworthy humanitarian contribution includes striving to improve the lives of others in their community. The definition of community is inherently broad, including the medical student community, their local community, an identity community, or any other community aligning with their humanitarian goals.
This award was created in honour of a very inspiring medical student from Queen’s University, Geordie Maguire, recognizing his incredible impact on those in his local community and across Canada. Geordie was the inaugural recipient of the award in 2023, clearly defining what it means to be a leader and humanitarian.
In recognition of their achievements, one member of the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) will receive the award. This award consists of:
- An engraved trophy
- A cash prize of $2000
- Paid travel expenses to attend the CFMS Spring Meeting in April to receive the award
Nominations for the award will open in the fall of each year and are due on November 30th, with the award winner announced in the new year thereafter.
