Program Representatives: Arguably, the most important members of the MCGSO are the Biomedical Graduate program representatives. Each biomedical graduate program has one or two representatives; a PhD student for PhD programs, and a Masters student for Masters programs. The program representatives are responsible for attending all MCGSO meetings and participating as committee members for either or both the Community Programming and Grant committees. If the designated Program Representative is unable to attend a meeting, we ask that they send a proxy representative to vote in the favor of that program in the event of any votes at the meeting in question. If you are interested in representing your program, please let us know!
