Student Participation

Each year a new group of medical students joined the project for the summer months. In past years these students have continued their work with the project long past their initial summer-term involvement.

  • In 2002 students engaged in project definition activities and participated in a curriculum workshop hosted by the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, 2003. In subsequent years these students continued project work and oriented new students.

  • In 2003 students researched specific content areas in gender and health to contribute to the curriculum development. A report outlining research in six subject areas was produced.

  • In 2004 students worked as a group and with site coordinators at each school to organize and enhance the body of curriculum and develop web-based self-learning tools. The basic module structure was finalized.

  • In 2005 students created a module on Gender and Poverty, using the opportunity to test and perfect the process for module development established in previous years.

  • In 2006 students worked on two new modules: Gender and Heart Failure and Gender and Dementia
