Students and Trainees Advocating for Resource Stewardship (STARS)
Inspiring the next generation of physicians in resource stewardship.
Choosing Wisely Canada has engaged medical students, residents, faculty, universities, professional organizations and regulatory bodies to embed resource stewardship principles into medical education.
STARS is a grassroots medical education campaign that supports student-led efforts to advance resource stewardship awareness and education. STARS leaders and interest groups are present at all 17 medical schools in Canada. To date, nine student cohorts have participated and involved over 300 medical student leaders.
Choosing Wisely Canada also has ongoing and active involvement from trainees including residents and fellows. Are you a trainee and want to learn more about Choosing Wisely Canada and medical education? Not sure who to talk to? Email us: STARS@choosingwiselycanada.org.
STARS Central is an online spot for currently enrolled student leaders to access information, connect with other medical student leaders, and get the latest updates from the program.
