If you are planning on applying to UGME to have the in-clinic (clinical exposure) hours you have acquired within the B.Sc. (Med.) Program credited to the UGME Summer Early Exposure Program; please go to the program's website for more information.
2019 Undergraduate Medical Student Research Symposium
This photo shows all of the 2nd year BSc(Med) students and all of
the Med Summer Research Program Students.
Without the generous support of our donors, funders and agency partners, the BSc(Med)
program would not be able to support as many students as we do.
The BSc(Med) Program is proudly funded by the Dean's Office, Max Rady College of Medicine, The Department of Surgery
at the University of Manitoba, the Thorlakson Foundation, the Rh Institute and the following organizations:
Program updates and policies:
In response to the student feedback for more undergraduate medical student research opportunities, the MED summer program is now available for students who have completed their first year of medicine (i.e., summer between end of first year and start of second year medicine) as well as for students who have completed their second year of medicine (summer between end of second year and start of the third year of medicine). In addition to offering MED Summer Research Program to 1st and 2nd year medical students for 1 summer, there is also no cap imposed on this program.
It is important to note, that there are limited number of faculty at the University of Manitoba and the number of MED Summer Research Projects is dependent on the number of faculty members willing to supervise and put forth a project abstract.
Intake for MED II Summer Research Program capped at 10 students for Summer 2018
B.Sc.(Med.) stipend to increase from $5,000 per term to $7,500 per term starting 2017 term
Clinical Component: As part of the BSc.(Med.) Program, all students are entitled to 48 hours of clinical exposure over the 2 summers of the B.Sc.(Med.) Program. The clinical exposure is to be agreed upon by both trainees and supervisors. The clinical exposure can be of greater than 48 hours for the entire program, but must not interfere with the proposed research project. For trainees working with basic scientists who do not provide clinical care, a clinical exposure with a clinical colleague with a similar area of study can be organized, or, alternatively, the trainee can contact a representative from the B.Sc.(Med.) Program for additional guidance on clinical exposures.
Supervisors may now supervise more than one B.Sc.(Med.) or MED II student at the same time, based on the following;
1. You may supervise one first-year and one second-year B.Sc.(Med.) at the same time.
2. You may supervise one B.Sc.(Med.) (either first or second year) and one MED II student at the same time
3. You may NOT supervise 2 MED II's or 2 'same term' B.Sc.(Med.) students at the same time.
All students/projects must be supervised by a primary and secondary supervisor. Please ensure you have reported the name of the primary supervisor and co-supervisor to the program office.
