Featured Student

By Emily Leighton, MA'13

Jennifer Branch, BMSc’11, Dentistry Class of 2018, has an eye for backpacks – especially the vibrant orange, green and purple ones that her medical student colleagues proudly don in the hallways of Schulich Medicine & Dentistry.

Branch is hoping to bring these pops of colour to the School’s dental classrooms and clinics. As an executive with the Federation of Canadian Dentistry Student Associations (FCDSA), she is helping initiate a national backpack program for dental students.

“It engages students and brings people together across the country,” she explained. “It’s an exciting way to enter the profession and something to look forward to for new students. It’s seen as a badge of honour.”
