THE MEDCONNECT CONFERENCE 2018 CONFERENCE HAS CONCLUDED. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU NEXT YEAR!


MedConnect’s Keynote Speakers

MedConnect will be featuring lectures from esteemed physicians, workshops from a team of nurses and a team of medical students, and a panel of medical students from each year of med school. Speakers and a short biography will be revealed periodically on this webpage as the event approaches.

Lectures from physicians will cover topics relevant for aspiring physicians challenging a modern medical world, such as a showcase of some of their most interesting cases, what their daily lives are like, and the hidden unknowns of their specific fields.

Our medical students will be sharing their unique perspectives on medicine, having gone through both the rigorous application process and the daily lifestyle of a physician in training. Giving advice on the pathway to medicine, holding specially catered workshops, and inspiring their future colleagues, the medical student panel cannot wait to meet the motivated event attendees of MedConnect.
