|ITEM||ACADEMIC TRAINEE||AFFILIATE MEMBER|
Academic Trainees are invited by the University to conduct their activities on campus under academic supervision. "Academic Trainee" is not a work or employee classification; rather it is closer to "stagiaire", in French, a person who is carrying out a "practicum". Academic Trainees are not registered as students or postdocs at McGill, but are pursuing further training in their field of expertise. They can not be given other duties/positions at McGill during this period.
Academic Trainees must normally provide proof of an existing affiliation and written confirmation that a further training period is required. The nature and duration of the training period must also be specified. The training period must be of short duration.
An Affiliate Member is a person, external to McGill, who is invited to participate in the academic activities of the University or an affiliated institution.
