The essay contest gives undergraduate medical students the opportunity to explore any theme of interest to them in the history, social studies, sociology, ethics, and humanities of the health sciences. It also provides them with the chance to be mentored by an expert in their topic drawn from the Library’s Board of Curators or elsewhere to complete their project, and to use the rich resources of the Osler Library and other libraries at McGill.
Medical students have found that the contest has allowed them to broaden their understanding of medicine in ways that go far beyond the curriculum.
Initial proposals are due May 2nd! For more information see https://www.mcgill.ca/library/branches/osler/essay-contest.
