Thank you for attending Operation Med School 2018!
On March 17, 2018, Operation Med School Calgary held one of its most successful conferences to date, “Ingenuity 2018“! The OMS 2018 team would like to thank all conference attendees for an engaging day, revolving around the theme of medical innovation.
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 its inaugural conference in 2015, OMS Calgary has hosted over 650 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.
OMS 2018’s Theme: Medical Innovation
In 2018, our conference had the theme of “Medical Innovation”. In addition to our core focus on the medical admissions process and the potential career paths in medicine, OMS also hosted speakers and workshops that introduced students to various innovations in medicine, ranging from biotechnology to new surgical methods. As such, OMS Calgary 2018’s conference was named Ingenuity 2018: OMS Calgary.
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.
The conference schedule can be found below, to provide some insight on the quality of speakers that attendees can expect from Ingenuity 2018: OMS Calgary!
