Nomination Process:

Applications are now being accepted until July 31, 2022 at 11:59 PM PDT.

The Canadian Federation of Medical Students will be hosting our Special General Meeting (SGM) virtually on August 7, 2022. During this meeting, we look forward to electing medical students for the following CFMS 2022-2023 Executive Board positions:

Nominations for the CFMS 2022-2023 Executive Board must be received no later than Sunday July 31st, 2022 11:59 PM PDT. Nominations will close strictly at this time.

The form requires an interested individual submit their name, email address, a photo, a brief bio/letter of intent (no more than 250 words) and a condensed CV (no more than 2 pages).

As per the CFMS By-laws, “Only individual medical student members and individual members-at-large who have attained the age of eighteen years, are in good standing with the Federation and the federal government as per the Act, and have the capacity to contract shall be eligible for election to the Board of Directors”. While previous experience with the workings of the CFMS is strongly encouraged, it is not required.

All applicants should review the CFMS Code of Conduct prior to submitting a nomination, to ensure you are comfortable with the expectations of a CFMS Executive Board.

To encourage transparency and program buy-in for board duties, medical students who are interested in running for the CFMS Executive Board should consider discussing the opportunity with their medical program before they run.

The CFMS is committed to furthering equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levels of the organization. It is critical that we have leadership that reflects the diversity of the medical profession and the communities we serve. We encourage nominations from candidates of all backgrounds and experiences, particularly those who have been historically underrepresented in medicine such as women, LGBTQ2S+, Indigenous Peoples, Persons with Disabilities, visible minorities/racialized groups, and other underrepresented groups.
