3 key points
- To serve as a two-way liaison between the McGill MD-PhD Society and the MSS
- To advocate for the unique needs and wants of MD students doing additional research training during their medical program
- To use multiple avenues (in person, online messaging, email, etc) to understand student perspectives in all levels of training
As your MD-PhD representative, I aim to advocate for the needs of MD-PhD students and those who seek to take a leave of absence to do additional research training during their undergraduate medical program. I intend to make sure their voices are heard as students who see such training as a continuous part of their medical education at McGill. As a member of the General MSS Council, I will ensure timely communication with the MD-PhD Student Society and the MSS on matters affecting MD-PhD students. Altogether, I hope to play a role in reducing the disconnect that MD+ trainees experience and advocate for their specific needs both during their MD years and during the years of their research training.
