The Cameron – Gilmour Memorial lectureship was established by the Medicine Class of 1938 to perpetuate the memories of their two Professors, Dr. A.T. Cameron and Dr. C.R. Gilmour, and their contributions to the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba.

The lectureship was set up by Dr. Gregoire Nyomba when he was Endocrinology and Metabolism Section Head in 2008, with the first lecture held on October 28, 2008.

A special fund for the Cameron-Gilmour lecture was set up in Endocrinology, used to pay for the honorarium, flight, accommodations, and local travel.

An external Visiting Professor is selected and invited by the Section Head - Endocrinology / Metabolism or designate to present the memorial lecture at an Internal Medicine Grand Rounds.

Past Cameron-Gilmour Lectures have been held in October, however, if needed, the lecture can be moved around to accommodate the availability of the guest speaker and the availability of the faculty members of the Section of Endocrinology / Metabolism.

The Section Head or designate touches base with the Communications and Special Events Officer for available dates in the Grand Rounds schedule, selects and invites a Visiting Professor to present the memorial lecture.

The Communications and Special Events Officer develops the brochure, poster, and advertises the event.

The Section of Endocrinology / Metabolism Secretary makes the flight and hotel arrangements for the Visiting Professor.
