Membership with the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) has many benefits for Ontario medical students. On top of taking pride in being a student member of your provincial professional association, for $22 a year you can also become a member of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and receive all the benefits of that membership as well.
The OMA represents the medical profession to the government on important topics like medical economics, legislation, regulations and education. As a student member, you will receive information and continuous updates on all efforts in these areas and will have avenues to become involved in the medical politics of the province.
The benefits of membership are many and range from leadership training to exclusive affinity discounts. Student members of the OMA can enrol for $100,000 of complimentary life insurance and get discounted disability insurance through the OMA Insurance Student Special Offer.
Students will receive Scrub-In, the OMA’s publication for Ontario medical students as well as the Ontario Medical Review as part of their membership.
Through the Association, eligible students will have access to financial assistance through a range of programs and bursaries specifically designed for Ontario medical students and can utilize the services of MD Management and Joule through their CMA membership.
Student members of the OMA will also become members of the Ontario Medical Student Association (OMSA).
Membership with the OMA runs from January 1 through December 31 each year and is only $22 a year!
