In collaboration with the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF) offers a one (1) week programme aimed to network, showcase and recognize health research trainees through an adjudicated presentation of their research, participation in CIHR-led career development seminars and the presentation of a symposium by world renowned, leading–edge scientists.

Founded in 1987 by Dr. Ed Kroeger (Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies in Medicine, 1987 – 2017) with support from academic leadership in the Faculty of Medicine, Research Days was meant to address the need for research-oriented networking opportunities for graduate students across Canada. This soon grew University-wide, later evolving into the national Canadian Student Health Research Forum.

CSHRF is attended by trainees across Canada and from Shantou University, Shantou, PRC.
