The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) and Canada Health Infoway, are pleased to promote the CHEC-CESC Virtual Patient Challenge 2012, which is part of the AFMC-Infoway Physician in Training e-Health Curriculum and e-Learning initiative.

Excellence will be rewarded through three grants (first place is $1,000) and other forms of recognition.

Submissions are invited from students attending a Canadian faculty of medicine at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate level. (Joint submissions between faculty members and students will also be considered.)  For full details, go to CHEC-CESC.

A notice of intention should be sent to as soon as possible. Submissions must be received by January 23, 2013 at 23:00 hours.
