History of Medicine Days in Calgary

Congratulations to four Schulich Medicine students who were presented with awards at the annual History of Medicine Days Conference in Calgary.

This year, a record number of 10 students from Schulich Medicine were invited to present at the national conference, which attracts medical students from across the country to present their work on the history of medicine.

“All 10 students delivered very strong presentations. I am delighted that four of these students were awarded prizes for their hard work,” said Shelley McKellar, PhD, Hannah Chair in the History of Medicine at Western University. “This national recognition reminds us of our students’ strong interest in the history of medicine.”
