CFMS COVID-19 Community Care Initiative Grants

The CFMS is proud to announce that we are supporting 20 different medical student community care projects through our COVID-19 community care initiative grants. These grassroots initiatives are taking place across the country and we look forward to continuing to see medical students make a huge difference with their work.

Medical student projects will be using the hashtag #Medicalstudentscare to denote their work. Watch for this on social media and help us spread the word!

We have compiled a summary of applicable measures that may impact Canadian medical students.
