Day 4: current issues

Day 4: current issues

This morning, I got to attend a discussion as part of the medical education standing committee.  Although the topics concerning research exchanges are very interesting, it was nice to see another aspect of IFMSA.  The discussion was on the lack of doctors in some less developed countries and in rural areas.  This discussion was quite pertinent because of the problems we have in Quebec.  It was also a time where we started thinking about long-term solutions to this problem.  Later on in the day, I had a themed presentation on the inequalities in healthcare given to illegal immigrants.  It was a time where we got to debate what should be done and how this issue could be resolved.  With these two discussions, I definitely had a lot to think about once the day was over.
