Endorsed Policy & Position Papers
The Ontario Medical Students Association's OPAC (Ontario Political Advocacy Committee) serves as a working group for the direction of our Advocacy and Lobby Day efforts guided by the policy and position papers endorsed by OMSA. These policy and position papers are designed to educate and to help direct our policy towards future lobbying efforts.
Although the OPAC and the Education Committee take the lead in the creation of most of these papers, any Ontario Medical Student is welcome to contribute new papers to OMSA for approval, or propose ideas and work alongside the OPAC and/or the Education Committee to develop new papers. For more information on creating and submitting new policy or position papers, please click here.
