CFMS Spring General Meeting

On April 27-30, Winnipeg played host to medical student leaders from across Canada at the Spring General Meeting of the Canadian Federation of Medical Students. Doctors Manitoba was a substantial sponsor and supporter of the event and were also included in the programming. On Friday morning, Matt Maruca led small working group sessions giving students information on how they can foster an effective relationship with their provincial and territorial medical associations. Once meetings had been adjourned Friday, the assembly was treated to dinner and a social at the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre sponsored by Doctors Manitoba. Saturday was filled with executive elections and resolution sessions. Notably, Henry Annan, a student from Dalhousie, was named President-Elect and the CFMS voted to form a task force to investigate how cannabis legislation will affect medical education. The CFMS and the MMSA are extremely grateful for Doctors Manitoba participation and continued support of medical students. Other schools were quite amazed by the collaboration between Doctors Manitoba and the MMSA, and we would like to thank everyone at Doctors Manitoba for working so hard to maintain a successful relationship with medical students.
