Medical Students Special Interest Group

The CSAM-SMCA Student Interest Group (SIG) is for Canadian medical students who want to advance their understanding of addiction medicine. The group builds on standard medical school training to enable students to learn more about addiction medicine as a career, offer educational opportunities  and offers members the opportunity to connect with peers and mentors in the Canadian addiction medicine community. The group was created by and for Canadian medical students, and is free to join.


CSAM-SMCA Special Interest Group (SIG) for Medical Students, Residents and Learners in Other Health Professions periodically hosts virtual learning events to provide a forum to learn about addiction medicine as a possible component of a future career and to assist learners in acquiring further expertise and knowledge in this area.

Our next virtual event is scheduled to take place Wednesday April 24, 2024 at 8:00 pm EST. Each event has a duration of one hour.

This event will consist of a presentation by Christian, who is a Person with Alcohol Use Disorder in recovery. He will discuss his recovery journey and touch upon some of the factors which led to the development of his substance use disorder and how health care providers have helped or hindered in his journey. He has kindly agreed to answer participants’ questions and participate in discussion at the end of his presentation.

Please RSVP below and you will be sent the zoom link for the session!
