We are looking forward to a great year at McGill’s Family Medicine Student Interest Group – which we affectionately call FaMSIG. We are kicking the year off with a Networking session with Family Medicine residents on Thursday September 4 from 6-8 pm at Thomson House. McGill is hosting the 6th Family Medicine Student Symposium on Saturday September 20, 2014 – please see this full article on the Symposium on the official website and the press release.
While the year’s activities will be decided on at the September meeting, we are tentatively planning the following events:
- Research in Family Medicine
- Social Pediatrics
- Medicine in Space (Astronaut)
- Rural rotations in family medicine
- Options of +1 in Family Medicine
- Skill’s Day
- Gala: Speed-dining with the docs
As we had so much success with our Petite Séduction to the Abitibi region last year, we hope to work with our medical partners to have another one to a different location this year.
