We're going virtual!

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

Our modified half day program will be comprised of 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 will continue to be limited.

In addition, our virtual event will include two 15-minute breaks, one of which will offer participants an optional "Peer Networking Opportunity". Display tables may also be available. Participants will require access to a computer, headset, video capabilities (optional), internet connection and a quiet space.
