As a medical student at the Max Rady College of Medicine, your MMSA membership fee is covered by a one-time payment at the beginning of first year. Membership with MMSA makes you eligible to apply for MMSA scholarships and Student Initiative Grants. Announcements about these are announced throughout the year.
Doctors Manitoba is the professional association that advocates for medical students and physicians on a provincial level. The national physician advocacy group is the Canadian Medical Association. You are members of both of these associations and they provide the same benefits to medical students as they do to residents and physicians. If you don’t know your CMA ID number, call 1-888-855-2555.
Your fee also includes membership with the Canadian Federation of Medical Students, which is the national body that serves and advocates for medical students.
