The “Fédération Médicale Étudiante du Québec” or FMEQ was founded in 1974 by the four medical student associations of Quebec, which are the AGÉMUS of Sherbrooke, the MSS of McGill, the RÉMUL of Laval and the AEEMUM of Montreal.
The FMEQ’s primary mission is to represent Quebec’s four medical associations in a single, united voice. It also works to defend and promote collective interests specific to Quebec medical students, most notably through pedagogical, political and social endeavours. It facilitates communication and collaboration between its associations and its members. It establishes partnerships that help provide specific services to its associative and individual members.
