  • What is the Spring General Meeting?

    The Spring General Meeting (SGM) is the CFMS board’s opportunity to update membership on all the incredible work and accomplishments of the term, engage on issues of importance to medical learners, and identify opportunities to continued value building. At the same time, it is the membership’s opportunity to engage directly with the board, create dialogue on issues known and unknown, and pass resolutions to chart the direction of the organization. Attend to not only learn more about your organization all in one place, but also to collaborate with your peers around the country to push medical education in Canada forward.
