2) GLOBAL HEALTH COLLOQUIUM / COLLOQUE DE SANTÉ MONDIALE – March 24-25th, 2012 @ Université de Montréal


Organisé chaque année depuis quatre ans par IFMSA-Québec, le Colloque de santé mondiale rassemble des étudiants des quatre facultés de médecine du Québec et des membres du public pour une fin de semaine complète d’information et de sensibilisation aux grands enjeux de la santé mondiale. Par le biais de conférences et d’ateliers, les participants seront amenés à réfléchir et à débattre de ces questions, ainsi qu’à reconnaître le rôle qu’ils pourront y jouer en tant que professionnels de la santé. Tous les comités d’IFMSA-Québec se sont joints à l’élaboration de la programmation, permettant d’élargir le spectre des sujets abordés à des problématiques touchant autant la santé mondiale que la santé publique, la santé reproductive et les droits humains.


3) Paths to a Mission with Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders – Tuesday, March 6th 2012 6-8pm, @ Stewart Biology S1/3


Do you plan to go on a mission with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)/Doctors Without Borders after you graduate, but don’t know what they’re looking for? Do you want to work for MSF as a doctor, nurse, logistician or administrator in the future and want to get the appropriate work experience under your belt? If so, then this event is for you!




The MonWHO 2012 Conference will take place on Friday March 23, Saturday March 24 and Sunday March 25 at the New Residence Hall in Montreal. Delegates can choose to take on the role of a country ambassador to the WHO, a journalist, a pharmaceutical representative or an NGO worker.




For the past 2 years, the McGill Aboriginal Health Interest Group has organized an evening-long workshop for students interested in learning more about Aboriginal culture and how it impacts our work with indigenous patients. Originally designed for students going to Aboriginal communities for clinical rotations, the workshop has been found to be useful for any student working in a health profession, even right here in Montreal.

This year the event will be held on the evening of May 8th with McGill medical and nursing students, as well as Universite de Montreal medical students.

If you have an interest in Aboriginal health or want to know more about Aboriginal culture, do not miss this workshop. This is an opportunity to increase your knowledge, learn from health professionals in this field and meet other students from nursing and medicine.

Spots are limited and interested students should email Vanessa at before Friday March 30. Priority will be given to U2, U3 and Masters students, but all students are invited to apply.
