 The Graduate Science Education Office and the Cumming School of Medicine recognized over 75 students who have achieved excellence in three theme areas: Leadership, Academic Excellence, and Student Experience.

 

Leadership recognition included those who received GSA Awards and the Finalist for the Jon Meddings Leadership Award.  Recognition in the student experience theme were those who participated on planning committees for large events hosted within CSM and for the public.  Academic excellence included Tri-Council Scholarship Award winners, finalists in the 2019-3MT Competition, the 2018 CSHRF Presentation Winners, and the 2019 President’s Award Winner.

Supporting students throughout their graduate training is an important part in their overall development.  With support to pursue awards, leadership opportunities and getting involved in the CSM Community students gain much needed skills that will transfer directly into the workforce, regardless of industry.  Student success in these same areas helps to improve the understanding and visibility of our programs and in greater scope the University of Calgary.

Recognizing our students for their excellence is important to building an inclusive community within the CSM.  We are proud of what our graduate students have achieved and will continue to support them in pursuing excellence.  Congratulations to all of those who received where recognized.
