• FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What will I gain from attending this conference? Can't all this information be found online?

    The information delegates receive at MedX is just one part of the experience. Our primary aim is to not just inform students about the path to becoming health professionals, but also to put students in contact with resources they may not find themselves, such as medical students to consult with, MCAT tutors as well as current doctors and medical professors. This one-of-a-kind networking experience can result in great contacts and mentors.

     

    Further, our MMI workshops, Opportunities' Fair, and panels are interactive and collaborative experiences that are irreproducible online. Our lineup of keynotes comprised of fascinating industry professionals will offer you different perspectives on the field of medicine, and motivate you to attain your educational goals.

    My university offers many medical school preparatory sessions. What makes MedX Conferences different?

    Our conference is your one-stop-shop for all things medical admissions. Rather than a series of disjointed seminars on various admissions related topics, we bring together all the information, resources and connections you need to craft an excellent application into one space. Being an event unaffiliated with any school, our delegates also get the chance to network with students, researchers and clinicians from institutions across Canada.

    Are the conferences in each city identical?

    Each conference follows a set of goals and objectives listed above, however may vary in their delivery of these objectives. Each conference will have a unique selection of workshops, speakers, and interactive sessions. Additionally, the majority of medical students and professionals presenting at each conference will be from the locality (ex. majority McMaster medical students and alumni at MedX Hamilton).
