Discovery Day in Health Sciences

NORTHERN ONTARIO SCHOOL OF MEDICINE, WITH LAKEHEAD AND LAURENTIAN UNIVERSITIES
Tuesday, May 18, 2021

 

WE'RE GOING VIRTUAL!

While so much of our world has changed due to COVID-19, our commitment to outreach and program delivery remains the same. Although we can't be onsite for an in-person event this year, we invite high school students and teachers to meet us online to explore careers in medicine and the health sciences.

Discovery Day 2021 will be held virtually on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 from 8:30 am - 1:30 pm. Discovery Day comprises a dynamic keynote lecture, exhibit booths, interactive workshops (English and French) and a career panel discussion. Students gain a clear picture of what it would be like to be a health professional by interacting with researchers, clinicians and educators in their real-life work setting. Discovery Days in Health Sciences are one-day events that give secondary school students (primarily Grades 10-11) who are interested in science the opportunity to explore a variety of career options in medicine and the health sciences. We are encouraging Science Teachers and Guidance counselors to only select students who are seriously interested in Health Sciences.

Our event will also include breaks with optional peer "Meet Up" opportunities. Display booths will also be available.

Participants will require access to a computer, headphones, video capabilities (optional), internet connection and a quiet space. This may mean they attend virtually from home that morning or are in front of a computer in a dedicated space at school. Please click on the links below for further details.
