McGill's Faculty of Medicine is a dynamic learning environment. Our students are highly energetic and motivated people who demonstrate leadership, teamwork, commitment to public service and dedication to the health and well-being of society in innumerable ways. The Medical Students' Society boasts a number of clubs and interest groups covering a broad range of topics including: Community Outreach Projects; Family Medicine Interest Student Interest Group; McGill Black Medical Association; McGill International Health Initiative; McGill Medicine & Dentistry Choir; McGill Journal of Medicine, just to name a few.
Recently, students from McGill put together a campaign on Diversity in Medical School. It is their belief that people of all races, colours, religions, and languages should have the same chance of getting into medical school and that people from any background have the potential to become excellent physicians and make a difference in their communities.
