Operation Med School is a one-day conference aiming to inspire high school students to pursue a career in medicine by providing insightful information on the many ways to get involved with medicine in high school, the process of medical school admissions, the diverse career paths after graduation, and much more. Since 2015, OMS Calgary has hosted over 500 conference attendees and provided countless opportunities for youth to broaden their understanding of the field of medicine. OMS offers a variety of keynote speakers, interactive workshops, engaging panels, and other activities annually at our conference.
This Year’s Theme: Medical Innovation
This year, our conference has the theme of “Medical Innovation”. In addition to our core focus on the medical admissions process and the potential career paths in medicine, OMS will also host speakers and workshops that will introduce students to various innovations in medicine, ranging from biotechnology to new surgical methods. As such, OMS Calgary 2018’s conference will be called Ingenuity 2018: OMS Calgary. Stay tuned for more details about the event itinerary!
OMS continues to make an active effort to target youth in financial need and from underrepresented populations, and giving them a chance to experience the potential of a career in medicine through OMS, who may not otherwise be able to attend. We are a non-profit organization, and all revenue goes either towards charity, or to venue and catering costs. Thus, we are proud to be making available financial assistance in partnership with local high school teachers. Please email [email protected] for more information.
Why should I buy a ticket, and what differentiates Operation Med School from other events?
Operation Med School is a national, non-profit, student-run organization that hosts annual conferences all across the country, providing students with the knowledge they need to succeed in their journey towards a medical career. We are the most established, longest-running high-school-student-oriented conference in Calgary, with all of our previous conferences selling out. Students will explore the path to medical school with a representative from the Cummings School of Medicine, attend Q&A sessions with real medical school students, listen to researchers talk about their work, attend an opportunity fair, and even more.
Why should I buy early?
Last year, all 207 Operation Med School Tickets sold out, and we had over 60 individuals on the wait-list. We truly believe the information we offer is incredibly valuable for all aspiring medical professionals, which is why we have expanded to a larger venue this year! Still, we cannot guarantee that every interested individual can get their hands on a ticket, which is why we recommend you buy a ticket early! In addition, the earlier you buy, the more you will save on the price of a ticket! See above for ticket pricing details.
Our finalized schedule from last year can be found below, to provide some insight on the quality of speakers that attendees can expect from Ingenuity 2018: OMS Calgary!
