MD students wishing to find a research placement within the vicinity of one of the distributed campuses may wish to contact the appropriate individual at their desired site (see below). Each site coordinator maintains a database of potential research supervisors for their specific campus. Individuals who are also interested in exploring opportunities in other areas of the province, including the VFMP, (or have general research opportunity questions) should contact the FoM Student Research Coordinator, Linda Herbert. If you aren’t sure who to contact, the Student Research Coordinator is available to assist you.
