About Us

The GHSYPS is an exciting and engaging event for students and young professionals from a variety of disciplines interested in the many facets of global health. The Summit provides students and young professionals with a platform to network and engage in meaningful discussion with like-minded peers. The event is organized by a diverse group of passionate students and young professionals across the country with a strong contribution from the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR) Students and Young Professionals Network.


The Canadian Global Health Student and Young Professional Global Health Summit (GHSYPS) aims to give space to students and young professionals (SYPs) involved or interested in the global health field. This is the forum for global health SYPs to connect, network, engage, and be inspired.

Leading experts, as well as outstanding SYPs, will question what the upcoming global health challenges of our time, and what we can do as Canadians in this arena. Participants will also be challenged to think about their careers paths through workshops and panels about diverse paths to careers in global health.

This year marks our 4th annual year of this event, taking place in Ottawa, ON. The full day conference event will run from 9am to 5pm on Saturday October 28th, 2017, with the Canadian Conference on Global Health taking place right after in Ottawa on Sunday October 29th - 31th, 2017.

This year we have two inspirational speakers opening and closing the conference - Hon. Keith Martin (Founding Executive Director of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health), and Dr. Theresa Tam (Canada's Chief Public Health Officer, Public Health Agency of Canada). As well as multiple Student and Young Professional speakers and panelists throughout the day!

We are so very excited for this truly exciting learning, networking, and inspiring event for students and young professionals in the global health field!



Catering will be provided throughout the day for registered attendees.
