Welcome Health Science Graduate Students! We would like to introduce ourselves and hope that we get to know you over the next few months.

We are the Health Sciences Graduate Students Federation (HSGSF) and represent students from all departments of the Health Sciences program. The HSGSF is a council of Grad students that works to make your graduate experience at McMaster more rewarding. Our aim is to facilitate opportunities for you to meet your fellow grad students, make contacts and have fun!! We organize a variety of activities from monthly coffee houses to academic seminars and social events which we hope you will take advantage of.

We always welcome participation by graduate students and if you are interested in helping, please email Aravin or Lindsay. We hope that your experience as a graduate student in the Faculty of Health Sciences is a great one! If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact any of the HSGSF members below.
