MedX Conferences are designed to be the ultimate medical preparatory experience. This conference features keynotes, workshops, group sessions, panelists and booths centered around a common theme: crafting excellent medical school applications and presenting yourself as an outstanding candidate.

Get inspired by talks from renowned medical doctors in Hamiton, who will share their insight and advice for those entering the world of medicine.
Finally, check out the incredible opportunities fair taking place during lunch, where delegates will be able to make connections with organzations that offer them application prep resources and community volunteer opportunities such as MD Consultants, MedCoach, The Princeton Review, Frontier College, 99.9 MCAT Prep, STEM Fellowship, and more!

My university offers many medical school preparatory sessions. What makes MedX Conferences different?
Our conference is your one-stop-shop for all things medical admissions. Rather than a series of disjointed seminars on various admissions related topics, we bring together all the information, resources and connections you need to craft an excellent application into one space. Being an event unaffiliated with any school, our delegates also get the chance to network with students and doctors from universities across the province.
