Funding Priorities

Anatomy and Surgical Skills Laboratory
By supporting the only training facility of its kind in Saskatchewan, you can help provide the latest in surgical equipment, instrumentation and simulation experience to the College of Medicine community. Your gift will also allow us to offer training courses that expertly combine academic theory and medical practice to improve patient health.

Neuroscience Research
The burden of neurological conditions both in Canada and worldwide is rapidly increasing. Collaborative neuroscience research, education, training and clinical innovation is needed to combat this epidemic. Thanks to donors like you, we can educate and provide funding to our talented research teams to develop innovations and discoveries of new technologies for the treatment of neurological and mental illness. 

Student Awards
Learning the art and science of medicine is a full-time pursuit. The average medical student will graduate with $100,000 of debt. We have a limited amount of bursary support for our students, but we have to do better. By supporting student awards, you are giving students with the greatest financial need the time to study and to make career decisions based on their interests and abilities, rather than their debt level. You are helping students during a time when they need it most, and they are truly grateful.

Aboriginal Health
The Aboriginal Health Research Fund provides funding to support ongoing research initiatives in the College of Medicine aimed at improving the health of Aboriginal communities, families and individuals.

Clinical Learning and Resource Centre
Simulation plays an important role in the education of health sciences students. It is vital to have the opportunity to practice and learn clinical skills in a safe, virtual environment.  Simulated real-life environments give students confidence in their ability to treat patients. With your support we can supply necessary equipment, maintain existing equipment and provide funding for future equipment needs.

Donor Appreciation

Thanks to donors, we are able to accomplish our mission. To them, we are grateful.
