What is UOHS about and how does it stand out from other healthcare events?

UOHS is the University of Ottawa’s largest undergraduate conference, 2021 marks our 11th year of hosting the event. We have curated a list of diverse and interesting speakers who are experienced in the healthcare field. Highlights include Dr. Vera Etches, the Medical Officer of Health for Ottawa Public Health and Dr. Gigi Osler, who specialises in head and neck surgery and actively volunteers in Africa to train other surgeons. Our goal is to not only focus the medical side of healthcare, but all aspects including engineering, politics, ethics, environment, and research. Unlike other healthcare events, you will not only be able to listen to speakers, but also network with industry professionals, participate in interactive panels, and be entered in raffles & giveaways.
