The Family Medicine Student Interest Group (FamSIG) is run by McGill medical students with a special interest in Family Medicine. Here are the events that took place so far this year.
Beer and Pizza with Residents
The event took place on September 10th, at Thomson House and was a great opportunity for students to talk with residents from different sites and ask them questions about family medicine and residency while enjoying free beer and pizza!
This evening conference occurred on October 10th and was organized in conjunction with the Emergency Medicine Interest Group. We invited Major Dauphin, a family doctor with special training in critical care, recently deployed to Afghanistan where he served as chief of a medical base, to come and speak about military medicine and the logistics of practicing medicine in hostile territories. As always, free food was provided!
Common skin problems and their management
This evening conference occurred on October 28th and was organized in conjunction with the McGill Dermatology Interest Group. Third year medical students with a special interest in dermatology prepared a very interesting talk on common skin problems and their management, from benign and malignant skin lesions to allergic reactions and skin manifestations of systemic diseases. It was a great presentation where the mind received nourishment as well as the stomach!
