VP External Affairs

The VP External serves as a liaison between the U of T and organizations outside of the school/Faculty of Medicine, mainly the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) and the Ontario Medical Students’ Association (OMSA). I attend regular meetings with VP Externals from across the province and the country. In doing so, I facilitate communication between the U of T student body, the OMSA and the CFMS. I am also the primary point of contact for external organizations that hope to share information and events with the U of T student body (e.g., OMA Insurance).

Hi everyone! My name is Justin and I am a second-year student. My family lives in Winnipeg and I completed my Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Manitoba. In my spare time, I love to play basketball, soccer and ultimate frisbee, as well as the piano.

1. Regularly share pertinent information from the CFMS and the OMSA with U of T medical students
2. Engage with U of T medical students and student organizations to hear about issues they would like me to discuss at a provincial/national level
3. Promote events relevant to U of T medical students from external organizations using social media
4. Coordinate province– and nation-wide advocacy initiatives with other VP Externals across Canada
