Unite & Ignite
This year's theme, Unite and Ignite, will focus on uniting and integrating the different diverse disciplines within healthcare, as well as witnessing healthcare professionals and government officials unite and ignite against healthcare issues that exist today. Speakers will share their respective collaborations and experiences with other healthcare professionals (i.e. engineers, scientists/researchers, government officials, etc.), working towards a common goal: tackling issues in healthcare. Our theme is not just limited to the topic of COVID-19.
The University of Ottawa Healthcare Symposium (UOHS) is a one-day undergraduate health conference that aims to increase awareness of the interdisciplinary field of health.
To ensure the safety of all guests during the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will be held online this year. UOHS will be offering a weekly webinar series starting from January to February 2021. These webinars will engage students' interest in health through interactive discussions, speaker presentations, and a research-based elevator pitch competition.
Furthermore, UOHS will be integrating monthly roundtable discussions. Join us every month to discuss a new topic in the field of healthcare!
UOHS was created eleven years ago by undergraduate students, and it has grown to become the University of Ottawa’s largest healthcare conference. Our goal is to help students garner a holistic view of healthcare – we hope that after attending UOHS, students will be able to reflect on many aspects of healthcare that they have never considered.
We look forward to seeing you at UOHS 2021!
Connect. Learn. Discuss. Eat.
