Here to help. Medical students lend a helping hand

Queen's medical students are offering their support to our physicians during this difficult time. They are offering services such as childcare, pickups/drop-offs, errands, etc.

You can sign up using the Online Staff Form and they will do their best to connect you with an available student in a timely manner. Please note: while this initiative is organized by Queen's medical students, it is NOT officially affiliated with Queen's University.
