International student testimony

Kushal Gill

"Being an international student, I was a little skeptical when I came to Canada but the support from the staff like Sylvie Deblois (Graduate Studies Academic Administration Officer), Blanche Dinelle (Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) Department Administrative Secretary) and all others was tremendous. When I discuss my experience with international students in other Canadian universities, I realize how lucky I am. The Graduate Studies Office of the Faculty of Medicine is very helpful in assisting students with financial aid. The staff at the Graduate Studies Office are very proactive in finding the academic potential of the students. The Faculty of Medicine provides a great exposure which helps to build a strong foundation. I am loving my stay in Ottawa." - Kushal Gill M.Sc.
