Reunion Class Gifts


Make your mark by giving to your class gift

Class gifts have been a long-standing tradition within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The power of many – your former classmates – makes for generous gifts that have a great impact.

Here are some great examples of class gifts that have made a difference:







Class of Medicine 1963: Scholarship Fund

The Class of Medicine 1963 has been giving to their class scholarship fund for over 20 years. The fund has supported over 130 medical students since 1999.

At their 55th anniversary in October 2018, the class of ’63 representatives presented a symbolic cheque of over $1,000,000 to Dr. David Eidelman, MDCM’79,
Vice-Principal (Health Affairs) and Dean of Medicine.

They established their class scholarship fund in 1998, in appreciation for the education they received at McGill and in commemoration of their Class' 35th anniversary of graduation. Their scholarships are awarded to medical students in good academic standing and based on financial need.



Class of Medicine 2008: Dr. Freda M. Omaswa Travel Award for the Study of Infectious and Tropical Diseases

The Class of Medicine 2008, family, friends and colleagues established this award in 2017 in appreciation of Dr. Freda M. Omaswa, MDCM ‘08. Freda was an accomplished and highly talented scientist, physician and infectious disease specialist. Her vision was the attainment of empowered healthy populations in Uganda, Africa and the world. She succumbed to metastatic colon cancer in 2016, at the age of 33 years. The Dr. Freda M. Omaswa Travel Award for the Study of Infectious and Tropical Diseases provides travel support for a MDCM student traveling to Africa in order to gain experience in tropical and infectious diseases.
