We are sponsoring 4 projects this summer, providing a $5,000 stipend per project.  The goal of the projects is focused on improving the MD Program.  Preference was given to projects that will directly impact or improve the curriculum.

The stipend will be used to pay the salary of a student selected to work on the project, which will last for a period of 10 weeks, to be completed between May 29 and August 11, 2023. If you are selected, you will also have the opportunity to present a poster at the Research Day in September (date to be determined).


Important informations

  • Eligibility: University of Ottawa UGME students currently in first or second year.
  • All students and supervisors will be contacted advising them of the results by May 12, 2023.
