OMS was started by a group of high school students
Operation Med School (OMS) is a non-profit, student-run organization that hosts one-day conferences in Canada and the United States of America to educate youth about the journey of a medical career. Our goal is to inspire, inform, and encourage students to follow their medical dreams and head bravely into their future endeavours.
OMS was started by a group of high school students in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2012. Each conference gives students a new approach to the career of medicine through activities and keynote presentations by medical professionals. It is the perfect chance for high school students to explore the field of medicine, meet peers who share the same passion, and network with our knowledgeable speakers.
