Each year, the CanHepC trainees elect a representative.

The student representative for 2016-2017 is Thomas Fabre.

The student representative is responsible for working with the administrator on any issues that may arise. In particular:

  • The student acts as the trainees' voice.
  • Sit in on the mentor portion of the annual meeting to give student input on program activities.
  • Organize the agenda at the annual meeting.
  • Sit on the organizer committee of the symposium. 
  • If a trainee has a problem with the program, they can ask the student rep to look into it.
  • Organize topics of the Journal Club with the Education Committee
  • Help with the MCB6355 course and agenda with the Education Committee
  • Organize activities around World Hepatitis Day
  • Additionally, the program administrator may ask the student rep to gather input from the other trainees on certain issues.
