Hi Med Peeps,

For some of you, the light at the end of the tunnel is shining quite bright; R&E week will be over soon for Med-1s and 1.5 days in Martin separate the Med-2s from summer. For the upper year students, the craziness of electives and CaRMS is brewing (sorry for the reminder) and our dear Med-4s will be R1s in T minus 11 days.

For me, this will be the last Murmur that I send. Hopefully you've enjoyed reading my lame puns and jokes. I will be passing the torch to your incoming MSS VP Internal, Annie Chabot. I can assure you that you will be in good hands. You can expect a Murmur to be sent out approximately once every 2-4 weeks over the summer, depending on the volume and time-sensitivity of the submissions that are made. Things will pick up again as classes resume.

All the best, be safe, and enjoy the process.

Natasha Caminsky, MSS VP Internal 2016-2017

Elective at McMaster? Condo for rent June 25-July 17 2017

Hi! My name is Yaameen Chanda, a McGill alumni and now a bariatric fellow at McMaster. I am offering my 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1100 sq. ft condo for rent to a reliable McGill elective student between June 25 to July 17, 2017, as I will be away on vacation. My preference is for a minimum 1 week rental. You will be staying in the master bedroom with en suite bathroom. Facilities include a washer/dryer, high-speed internet, and guest parking. The building also has a hot tub, lap pool and gym. I am conveniently located in downtown Hamilton at the corner of Main and Caroline Streets, a short walk to St. Joe’s and a 7-10 minute drive to the remaining three hospitals. In close proximity is Hess village and trendy Locke Street. Rent is $600/week, negotiable if you plan to stay for several weeks. Pictures and references on request. Cheers!
