While so much of our world has changed this year 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 Fall, we invite high school students and teachers to meet us online to explore careers in medicine and the health sciences.

Our modified virtual half day program comprises a keynote lecture, an interactive workshop and a career panel discussion. As always, participants will have the opportunity to select their own workshop. Please note that, although our delivery model has been adapted temporarily, the program is still considered an individual learning opportunity and workshop spaces continue to be limited. As we have in the past, we ask you to identify select Grade 11 students interested in science to attend the event.

Our virtual event will also include two 15-minute breaks, one of which offers participants an optional "Peer Networking Opportunity". Virtual display ‘booths’ may 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 link below for the day's schedule.
