Bursaries at Work


“My bursary gave me more time with my kids.” – Curtis Woolf

Curtis Woolf was just one of the 46 students who received a bursary funded by the 2017 Annual North/South Doctors’ Golf Tournament.

Bursaries from the golf tournament can cover a range of things. From tuition, to travel costs for medical electives, to subsidizing rent, to buying groceries, these funds help alleviate the stress of accumulating debt. For these students, anything that keeps their debt from rising can mean the world.

Curtis’s bursary also granted him priceless time with his family. “I am a father of four and medical school keeps me very busy. This money will cover tuition costs next year, which allows me to spend less time working over the summer and more time making memories with my children.”

In 2017, we broke a record and raised over $69,000 for medical student bursaries. Want to help us do it again? Join us at the 91st Annual North South Doctors’ Golf Tournament.

North/South Doctors’ Golf Tournament a Swinging Success


88th Annual Tournament raises over $50,000 for medical student bursaries

Physicians and health care leaders from across the province teed off Monday, July 6th at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club to support Alberta’s next generation of physicians.

The 88th Annual North/South Doctors’ Golf Tournament, co-hosted by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA), Alberta Medical Association (AMA) and Canadian Medical Foundation (CMF), raised over $50,000 for medical student bursaries – the largest amount raised in the tournament’s history.

Participants enjoyed a sunny day of golf, a buffet breakfast, BBQ lunch and great prize draws. Medical students and residents also attended and teamed up with CPSA and AMA staff to network and connect with their colleagues.

Thank you to all participants and sponsors for making this year’s tournament a success. See you on the links in 2016!
