Resident and Medical Student Event Support

The OCFP has created a fund to support resident and medical student events at each of the six medical schools across the province. 

This fund will be distributed as follows: 
$1000 per school for family medicine residents to use towards on-campus events, retreats or any other event that engages other family medicine residents. 
$500 for events organized by residents for medical students. 
$500 for events organized by medical students for medical students. 


Important Dates: 
Requests for funding must be received by the OCFP before December 9, 2016.
Events and activities must take place by March 31, 2017.
Please allow 30 days for the funds to be distributed. 

How to Apply: 
Interested residents, medical students and FMIG leads must complete and email a request form describing the event or activity and the amount of funding required, to ocfp@cfpc.ca, subject line "Attention: Resident and Medical Student Event Support". 

The description should include how it supports family medicine and opportunities to acknowledge funding support from OCFP. 

Questions should be sent to ocfp@cfpc.ca with the subject line “Attention: Resident and Medical Student Event Support”.  

Important to note: 

  • The OCFP requests that all successful applicants provide feedback once their event has taken place, including any resulting photographs, video, or comments from attendees. 
  • Please note in 2017 requests for funding will be requested by end of October to allow for events to take place earlier in the school year.
