Trainee Members

Trainee members are students or post-doctoral fellows in recognized post-secondary institutions. Membership is not limited to students of the University of Regina. 

Trainee members have the opportunity to volunteer for CAH committees, which like CAH Membership in general, offers important academic experience.  Ultimately, as students gain experience and become faculty, researchers or health professionals, their CAH membership status can be upgraded from Trainee Member to Associate Member, Professional Associate, or Member.
