Join the Reserves

For residents and fellows:

Please go to this SIR Connect page to apply for the SIR RFS Reserves (you will need to log in to get access).

All new applicants will be placed in an “RFS Reserves” group (rather than being assigned to a committee and service line as in the past). While in the Reserves, your name will not be listed on the SIR RFS website under a specific committee or line.

Chairs will email the Reserves group about projects. You can then volunteer to help on any project you might find interesting. When you get involved in a specific project, you become a member of that committee/service line, at which time your name will be listed within that committee on the SIR RFS website until the following academic year. Please note that your name will be searchable and available on the RFS website for program directors and others to see. As has always been the case, your activity within the SIR RFS will be documented on your SIR Connect profile. Also, only members active in a committee at year’s end are eligible to run for a Governing Council position.

If you want to return to Reserves status to hear about other committees and projects you can do so. You will also be returned to Reserves status if you cannot participate in the committee (multiple missed meetings, non-involvement in current projects, etc.), but you can always come back!

For medical students: 

  1. Complete the application to join the MSC Reserves.
  2. You will then be contacted by committees about projects and initiatives that are in progress. 
  3. If you hear about something you are interested in helping with, simply respond and start helping out!
  4. After the project is complete, you will have the choice of staying active in that committee, or returning to the MSC Reserves list and finding a new, exciting project.

How can I get even more involved?

Apply for a Position on the MSC or RFS Council

SIR members are eligible to apply for positions on the executive council for their respective section.

Residents & Fellows: We are not accepting RFS General Council applications at this time. If you are interested in applying, check back periodically for when we re-open our application cycle. For any questions please email

Medical Students: The deadline to apply for the 2020 Medical Student Council has passed. Please check back around March-April 2021. Note this is a year-long commitment. For any questions please email

I'm a little too busy for that, what should I do?
