Supporting health through research and education.

Shared Fellowship

McLaughlin-MMSF Research and Education Fellowship

For many years the McLaughlin Foundation has funded senior medical residents or completing residents with research fellowships to facilitate the advancement of research skills. It has become a very prestigious recognition to have been appointed a McLaughlin Fellow. In 2000, the McLaughlin Foundation decided to discontinue its continuing program, and, in shutting down, granted Canada's medical schools a lump sum payment intended to continue a program of clinical research development for senior/graduating residents.

The University of Manitoba was granted $500,000 for a once only payment. This would provide, as an endowment, an award of $25,000 annually in support of a senior resident's salary. The Manitoba Medical Service Foundation agreed, at their Board meeting in May 2002, to match the $25,000 (this award is to be approved annually by the MMSF board) to allow an award of $50,000 per year to a deserving resident showing promise of an academic career with research activity.

To date the MMSF has provided contributions totaling $260,000 in support of this award with matching funds provided by the University of Manitoba.
