Who we are

Investing in the future of medicine

The Ontario Medical Student Bursary Fund (OMSBF) is an initiative of the Ontario Medical Foundation (OMF), a registered charity established by the OMA in 1967.

Developed in 1999, the OMSBF was created in response to concerns raised about increasing tuition fees and mounting debts for Ontario medical students.

Through the support of a dedicated donor base (including physicians, concerned individuals, corporations and foundations) and via OMSBF events, funds are raised and provided to students in financial need through the distribution of non-repayable bursaries.

Together we are helping to safeguard the future of medicine in Ontario by working to ensure that the most qualified candidates are able to pursue a career in medicine – regardless of their socio-economic background.
