The Ontario Medical Student Bursary Fund (OMSBF) is an initiative of the Ontario Medical Foundation (OMF), a registered charity established by members of the Ontario Medical Association. Under the OMF umbrella, the OMSBF fundraises through individual and corporate solicitation, and events, such as the annual golf tournament. Funds raised are used to provide bursaries for medical students who require financial assistance.
The OMSBF offers two types of bursaries (OMSBF General Bursaries and OMSBF Named Bursaries) to medical students studying in one of the six Ontario medical schools. In addition, the OMF offers two bursaries per school to assist students in taking up elective programs.
Please visit the OMF website for more information on bursaries and other programs.
The Final Year Medical Student Bursary (FYMSB) is a negotiated OMA benefit which provides a bursary of $750 per month, paid quarterly, to eligible students in their final 12 months of study in an Ontario medical school, as well as to International Medical Graduates (IMG) completing a Family Medicine Pre-Residency Program or a Specialist Clerkship Program in an Ontario medical school. As this program is no longer administered by the OMA, please visithttp://www.health.gov.on.ca/ or get in touch with your Faculty of Medicine for more information.
