Event description
After our successful first annual conference last September 2018, we invite you to attend the second MedX Vancouver pre-medical conference!

About this Event

The second MedX Vancouver conference is taking place in March 2020 at the University of British Columbia! MedX Conferences are designed to be the ultimate medical preparatory experience. The conference features keynote speakers, workshops, group sessions, panelists and booths centred around a common theme: crafting excellent medical school applications and presenting yourself as an outstanding candidate.

This year the conference is in collaboration with the UBC Cancer Association and will surround the conference theme and focus on the "Fight for Cancer", featuring workshops led by medical residents, doctors and prep companies with topics including 'Mastering the MCAT' and 'A Glance Into MMI Interviews'. Get inspired by talks from Dr. Ada Leung, Director of Operations at Cuprous Pharmaceuticals, and medical student and Wesbrook Scholar, Joban Bal, who will share their insight and advice for those entering the world of medicine!

Our 'Medical Student Panel' will complete the preparatory experience by giving you the opportunity to ask questions and engage with current medical students!

Finally, check out the opportunities fair taking place during lunch, where delegates will be able to make connections with organizations that offer them application prep resources and volunteer opportunities such as The Princeton Review, UBC’s Médecins Sans Frontières, and more!

Don't miss out on this unique and informative event, get your tickets while they last! Tickets typically completely sell out within 1-2 weeks.

FAQs

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.

Is this event only for University of British Columbia students?

➖This event is open to students from any post-secondary institution in Canada! We have additional conferences happening across the nation, which will also be open to students from any school. Further conferences across Canada can be found on the MedX Canada page.

What is included in my ticket price?

➖A single admission ticket to MedX Vancouver includes lunch, and access to all keynotes, workshops, and panels.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

➖Yes, proof of enrollment in an academic institution will be required upon entry, such as a student card or a university distributed bus pass. The ID must have your full name, as well as a photo on it. There is no age limit.

Is there a dresscode for the event?

➖Suggested dresscode for all delegates and speakers is business casual.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

➖There is paid parking available at the Carey Centre, the Chan Centre, and the West and North parkades. There is also the UBC Bus Loop, which is only a short walk away from the venue.

What should I bring to the event?

➖Feel free to bring notepads, water bottles, snacks, and whatever you may need throughout the day. Please note that food and drinks are not allowed in the workshop rooms or auditoriums.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

➖Tickets to MedX Vancouver are non-refundable and non-transferable. Each delegate will be receiving customized name tags and schedules, and so a transfer of ticket will result in the ticket becoming invalidated.
