Discovery Day - Hamilton Health Sciences

Wednesday, June 1, 2022
Virtual (8:30 AM - 12:30 PM)
HHS, McMaster University, St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, Accelevents Event Platform

Discovery Days in Health Sciences are one-day events that provide secondary school students (grades 10 and 11) with the opportunity to explore a variety of career options in medicine and the health sciences. High school students gain a clearer picture of what it would be like to be a health professional by interacting with researchers, clinicians and educators in their real-life work setting. The event includes: 

  •          A dynamic keynote lecture
  •          Interactive workshops
  •          'Health Pros Tell All' career panel discussion 

A teacher or guidance counsellor serving as a liaison between the CMHF and students must register the school. The liaison will receive periodic updates and further information, including instructions about how students register. 

The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame is committed to fostering inclusion and supporting the leadership efforts at Canadian universities to change the diversity pathway to medicine and the health sciences. We encourage teachers to include students who self-identify as Indigenous, Black or a Person of Colour, or who come from a rural or known disadvantaged socioeconomic background, when considering who will be invited to attend this event.
