International Medical Graduates | Final Year Medical Student Bursary

Are you entering your final year of medical school after April 2009?

If so, you should take advantage of The Final Year Medical Student Bursary (FYMSB) Program. It provides a stipend for medical students and International Medical Graduates (IMGs) when many are conducting clerkships in their final year of study in an Ontario medical school. Eligible students receive $750 per month, paid quarterly, beginning in July 2009, for the 12 months of their final year. Eligible IMGs in the family medicine and/or the specialist pre-residency program receive $750 per month for actual time in an Ontario medical school. Eligible Ontario medical students must submit an application form to the OMA no later than eight weeks after program commencement.

We advise you contact OMA for complete details on the application process.
