McGill’s Family Medicine Graduate Student Society (FMGSS) was recently recognized by the Post Graduate Student Society (PGSS) of McGill University awarded both the Post Graduate Student Association of the Year Award and the Best Academic Event Award. The awards were presented during the 2018 PGSS Awards Night on April 12, an event that aims to recognize students, student groups and student-run events that have proven themselves to be outstanding within PGSS. The awards were presented by Dean Josephine Nalbantoglu of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. For their achievements, the FMGSS will be engraved on a plaque at the entrance of Thomson House.

“On behalf of the FMGSS, we are thrilled to be recognized by PGSS for our accomplishments and efforts over the past year,” says Nickoo Merati, President of FMGSS. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Chair Dr. Howard Bergman and Director Dr. Gillian Bartlett for their continuous support, and of course thank my fellow FMGSS executive members for their tireless dedication and outstanding contributions to student governance over the past year. It has been an honour to work with our student body, and I look forward to the continual successes of our inspiring graduate students.”
