BSc Medicine Summer Student Program

The B.Sc. (Med) program was formally introduced in 1948 under the direction of Dr. Joe Doupe. It’s a two-year course designed to give medical students an opportunity to engage in original research, either basic or clinical, under the supervision of a member of the Faculty. The specific aim is to develop skills in experimental design, hypothesis testing, critical evaluation of data, and the effective communication of results. The program runs for 13 weeks during the summer break after year one and two of medical school. All students receive stipendiary support, presently $5,000. The MMSF is a major contributor to the support of these students in the amount of $45,000 annually which equates to stipendiary support of nine students. Since 1974 the MMSF has contributed over $1,322,000.

Stipend support, from all donors, is distributed evenly between the students enrolled in the program. The B.Sc. Medicine Summer Student Program is supported by many organizations, including the Manitoba Medical Service Foundation, Manitoba Institute of Child Health, Health Sciences Centre Research Foundation, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, St. Boniface Hospital Research Foundation , The Dr. Paul H.T. Thorlakson Foundation Fund, Manitoba Health Research Council, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada Studentship, Dean of Medicine and University Manitoba Scholarships, and The Kidney Foundation of Canada Manitoba Branch.

The MMSF is proud of their ongoing support of the program and commends each student on expanding their research skills and knowledge.
