As the National Resident Representative, I am pleased to work with all of you. The Federation of Medical Women of Canada strives to support and engage female medical residents in a multitude of ways; mentorship and career planning is an important aspect of residency that is not easy to explore while working busy hours.
The FMWC Student/Resident Group is a national network of local FMWC branches that host a variety of events that further the skills and interests of both female medical students and residents. Our breadth of events span professional and social development workshops and include awareness and advocacy events on both local and national levels. We are also very excited to offer student and resident scholarships for research and leadership from generous FMWC donors and supporters.
Please consider joining the FMWC as a resident now and become quickly involved in a growing national network of female physicians and benefit from the incredible professional opportunities available to members!
You’ll learn firsthand from professionals in your field, finding mentors when you need one most as well as make lifelong friends. As well as benefiting from FMWC activities at branch and national levels, FMWC resident members can participate in student activities of the Medical Women’s International Association.
