MD Student Conference Bursary

The Academic program at Women’s College Hospital (WCH) is pleased to announce a new medical student travel bursary to promote education scholarship among early career medical trainees.

Through a generous donation, the Academic program offers this bursary to support University of Toronto medical students from all Academies who were supervised by a WCH supervisor and who presented their education research or scholarship at an academic conference (e.g. medical, healthcare, education).

Up to $1,500 will be awarded among successful applicants (i.e., a total of $1,500 annually) to help cover costs such as travel, accommodation, conference registration, and posters. Successful applicants will be notified via e-mail and be recognized at the annual Women’s College Hospital Day of Excellence Ceremony in the spring.

The bursary submission deadline is Friday March 29, 2024.
