School Matters Getting Involved

Although our lives may be full of extracurricular activities, being a student of medicine is the priority right now. The difficult bit is that while we were all experts in the field that we came from, we’re still learning to become experts in medicine. As a result you may find that things aren’t going quite as smoothly as they used to. For tips on how to keep up your “A” game, there is the School Matters section. Here you’ll find tips on simple things like where to go if you have a question, all the way up to deciding if your study style needs a complete overhaul. Have a look and take what you need. Happy studying.


Medical school is about more than just the lectures and small groups, and we really want each student to get involved with something that they love.  From clubs and interest groups to athletics and arts, the campus has a lot to offer.

To keep fit, the university offers trails, a skating rink, and a state-of-the-art gym.  There are also medical events at the campus, provincial, and countrywide level to enjoy.  So get out there and have some fun!
