Addressing Black health and wellness in academic medicine
February 21, 2023
The AFMC Board has approved the creation of a Committee on Black Health, Innovation and Advancement to provide support and advice to the AFMC Board, through the Standing Committee on Social Accountability (SCSA), on strategic and operational matters related to Black health and wellness in academic medicine.

The AFMC Student Portal is an online, bilingual service that facilitates applications and placements of medical students for undergraduate visiting electives at the 17 faculties of medicine in Canada.

We are pleased to announce that all Canadian schools of medicine are now live in the Portal offering almost all electives in a limited capacity. AFMC is working with the universities to expand their electives offering for the Fall of 2023.

Through the portal, students can browse electives prior to paying the registration fee, quickly accept or withdraw offers, easily update documents, and view and apply for specialties from their cell phone, tablet, laptop, or PC. From the school’s perspective, staff can set capacity levels by location with the ability to see how many requests are pending and how many have been accepted, can upload documents such as contracts and generate a survey for students and preceptors to complete at the end of the placement. The verification process is now simpler as schools can upload students that have already been verified by their home school verifier.

All schools have uploaded their Class of 2024 students and have started to load their Class of 2025 students for a total of 4,000 students who are eligible to apply for visiting electives. In addition, there are 1,000 international students. As of July 2023, we have received a total of 1,900 student applications.
