Family Medicine Research symposium
The 4th Annual Family Medicine Research Symposium will be held on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at Thomson House. This is an excellent opportunity to present your thesis work to your peers and our faculty and receive valuable feedback!
We are thrilled to share that this year we have partnered with the McGill Journal of Medicine (MJM), which will publish a special conference proceedings issue featuring the top 15 submissions from our Symposium. This is the first special conference proceedings issue for our Department, and significant in that our students’ work can be made visible to both Canadian as well as international clinical audiences.
The deadline for abstract submission is Monday, February 26, 2018 at 11:59 pm EST, here.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Mark Clarfield, from Ben Gurion University of the Negev. Dr. Clarfield was received his MD from the University of Toronto in 1975, and went on the specialise first in Family Medicine, then Community Medicine and Public Health and finally in Geriatrics. He was with the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University from 1978 -1992, where he was Chief of Geriatrics at the Sir Mortimer B. Davis – Jewish General Hospital as well as head of the McGill University Division of Geriatric Medicine. He maintains an adjunct status at McGill University. Dr Clarfield’s research interests include Alzheimer disease and the related dementias, the organization of health care services, medical history and ethics. As well, he publishes medical humour, book reviews and miscellaneous pieces in various newspapers. A bit of a journalistic nudnik, he has published many letters to the editor in publications around the world.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to the peer review committee coordinators Stephanie Long or Vaso Rahimzadeh for any questions you may have regarding the peer review process and/or the special issue. We are looking forward to another successful Symposium and to working closely with the MJM to highlight your abstracts!
