The Section of Medical Students are the dedicated student voice of the OMA. They represent the views and concerns of the over 4,000 Ontario medical students on a number of issues.
The Student Section of the OMA was officially founded during the Ontario Medical Association's AGM in May 1974. Students at each of the six Ontario medical schools (Western, McMaster, Toronto, Queens, Ottawa, and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine) elect two representatives to serve on the Student Section Executive for a two-year term. These representatives elect a Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary to serve for a one-year period.
The Section of Medical Students started working to make certain that all Ontario medical students are able to access postgraduate training positions in this province. While medical school enrolment has increased steadily in the last few years, residency positions have not kept pace. The Section is committed to working toward ensuring that there are adequate postgraduate training positions in Ontario, and that these positions are appropriately distributed among the various disciplines so graduates are able to enter their disciplines of interest.
