Volunteer Services Coordinators: Eligibility and Selection

One to three students will be selected by the Medical Student Council each year to become Volunteer Services Coordinators.

Candidates eligible to become the Volunteer Services Coordinators can be from any year of medical school. The term of the Volunteer Services Coordinator begins in late spring of the current year and runs until a position becomes vacant.

One to Three candidates are chosen by the interview steering committee during Interview Day and presented by way of written recommendations to the MSC President and Vice-President. The President and Vice-President take the recommendations of the Interview Steering Committee into close consideration but assess all of the candidates for the position.

One to three candidates will be recommended by the President and Vice-President to the Medical Student Council voting members.  An additional candidate will be recommended as an alternate in the rare event that a chosen candidate becomes delinquent at the position or can no longer fulfill the responsibilities of the position for any reason.
