Organizational Timeline

A Short History of the CFMS

1970s | 1980s | 1990s | 2000 | 2010s

 

1970s

1977/78, 78/79 - Leo Plouffe (McGill)

Executive Committee:

  • Western Vice President: Marcia M Johnson
  • Ontario Vice President: John Rowan

Accomplishments:

  • Student delegates at the Annual Meeting of the Association of Canadian Medical Colleges recognize the need for a national representative body for medical students and form the Canadian Federation of Medical Student Societies.

1979/80 - Robert Conn (UBC)

Executive Committee:

  • Western Director: Lorne Bellan (U of Manitoba)
  • Ontario Director: Jim Watson (UWO)
  • Quebec Director: Pierre Tremblay (U de M)
  • Maritime Director: Kevin Keating (MUN)

Accomplishments:

  • After much debate, the Canadian Federation of Medical Student Societies becomes the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS)/La Federation des Etudiants en Medecine du Canada (FEMC) to better represent the interests of all Canadian medical students and establishes its Constitution; all 16 Canadian medical schools are represented.
  • The CFMS/FEMC questions proposed billing restrictions for new graduates to obtain billing numbers and work; this issue would eventually be taken to the Supreme Court of Canada by CFMS alumni as CAIR representatives.
  • Mediscan, a quarterly newsletter to update medical students on initiatives from across the country, is created.
Major Issues:
  • The CFMS/FEMC advocates for a computerized intern match by the Canadian Intern Matching Service (CIMS).
  • Discussion surrounding the elimination of the rotating internship year is an important issue for medical students; the CFMS/FEMC is concerned that it would force early career decision making and would eliminate the opportunity for new graduates to work as a general practitioner for several years before deciding to pursue specialist practice.
  • The CFMS/FEMC leads a coordinated effort of medical students across Canada in advocating for final year clerkship stipends from provincial governments.

 

1980s

1980/81 - Michael Strong (Queen's)

 

Accomplishments:

  • Mediscan, the CFMS/FEMC’s official publication, is adapted to become a biannual journal for Canadian medical students, expanding from its previous role of providing updates to students to being a forum for discussion and the exchange of ideas.

1981/82 - Frank Kriger (U of Manitoba)

Major Issues:

  • The CFMS/FEMC explores the possibility of national distribution of medical equipment to decrease the costs to medical students across the country
  • Reductions in post-graduate training positions and their impact on Canadian medical students is identified as a critical issue for investigation by the CFMS/FEMC with a potential resulting policy statement

1982/83 - Henry Solow (McMaster)

  • The CFMS/FEMC resolves to continue the work of representing medical students to the Canadian Intern Matching Service (CIMS).
  • Liaison roles with other national organizations such as the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and the Canadian Association of Interns and Residents (CAIR) is expanded to the ACMC through participation in their Postgraduate Education Committee.
  • The CFMS/FEMC advocates for Canadian graduates who have gone unmatched in the internship match; these students are offered funded internship positions.

Major Issues:

  • McGill’s work to increase translation of CFMS/FEMC documents proves challenging due to lack of funds and difficulty in engaging fluently bilingual students in translation projects.
  • Mediscan, the CFMS/FEMC’s national medical student publication, experiences difficulties in collecting appropriate content and meeting appropriate publishing deadlines.
  • The inclusion of Graduates of Foreign Medical Schools (GOFMs) into Canadian postgraduate training programs is a major concern for the CFMS/FEMC with ongoing decreases in postgraduate training positions. At this time students graduating from ACMC recognized US and UK medical schools are exempted from additional postgraduate training in Canada.

1983/84 - Marc-Andre Bergeron (U of C)

 

1984/85 - Stephen Wheeler (UBC)

Accomplishments:

  • The CFMS/FEMC works with CAIR and PARIBC to challenge restriction in billing numbers by the BC government.
  • The matching service board endorses a computerized, standardized matching service, largely due to CFMS/FEMC involvement and advocacy; students are no longer faced with the conflicts of receiving different residency offers at different times.
  • The RED binder, a compilation of residency program information from across the country, is created by the CFMS/FEMC reps to distribute hard to find residency program information to all medical students.

Major Issues:

  • Connections between industry and the medical community are a major concern for students, particularly with regards to sponsorship; the CFMS/FEMC chooses not to engage with pharmaceutical companies in sponsorship of any kind.
