Discovery Day at Queen’s University

This is a Canadian Medical Hall of Fame and Queen’s Faculty of Health Sciences event.

Application Deadline: Monday, May 8, 2017. Register online here

Discovery Days in Health Sciences are one-day workshops that give secondary school students (primarily Grade 11) who are interested in science the opportunity to explore a variety of career options in medicine and the health sciences.

A Discovery Day comprises a dynamic keynote lecture, interactive workshops and a career panel discussion. Students gain a clear 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. Teachers/guidance counsellors are also welcome, but not required, to attend.  Pre-registration is required.
