Seeds of Change Campaign

Help support MUSIG during our Seeds of Change campaign as we trying to obtain two refurbished ultrasound machines so that we can offer supplementary ultrasound training to McGill medical students!
Basic ultrasound education is currently in our curriculum; however, students lack sufficient time to become confident and proficient at bedside ultrasound. By obtaining our own ultrasound machines, we will be able to provide critical training and learning opportunities that our students need to become world leaders in point-of-care ultrasound. Your support will help us ensure the next generation of McGill doctors are the very best Canada has to offer!
You can support us through our webpage link below or help us by sharing our cause with friends and family through social media. If you can, please contribute on March 13th, as these donations will be matched by the Seeds of Change platform! Thank you!

P.s. By supporting us, you are supporting your own education! Your gifts will help us have an impact on the future of our healthcare!
