 Two and One Half Days of Events Showcasing
Excellence in Medical Student Research!

The CNMSRS is hosted by the University of Manitoba. Each year we are proud to host the brightest and best medical student researchers from all over Canada. This two and one-half day event promotes interaction between medical and basic science trainees engaged in discovery, translational, clinical and population health research among participants from all Canadian Medical Schools.
The first half of this year’s conference is focused on presentations by and to undergraduate medical students who are carrying out research themselves. The program includes cutting edge presentations by leading Canadian Clinician Scientist researchers, trainee presentations in oral and poster discussion sessions, and a professional development workshop entitled 'Strategies for Obtaining and Keeping a Position as a Clinician Scientist'. 


There are 3 categories of presentations:

1) selected oral presentations

2) new trainee poster presentation (less than 1 year research experience)

3) experienced trainee poster presentation (more than 1 year research  experience)


There is a one day Symposium involving ~500 research trainees of diverse backgrounds with six international leaders in research. 


We thank our Sponsors for their generous support of this continuing initiative to enhance interactions amongst developing researchers of all disciplines from across Canada. 


Due to the commitment of our local and national sponsors, we are able to offer each medical school the opportunity to send up to five delegates. We cover the following costs for the symposium invitees; accommodation for June 6th and 7th, most meals, academic and social programming.

CNMSRS is held in conjunction with the Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF), and provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate medical students to network. Both CNMSRS and CSHRF participants are invited to attend the final day,  June 8th.
