Ontario Medical Student Weekend (OMSW) is the largest annual academic medical student conference in Canada. OMSW is a two-day conference inviting first year medical students from across all the medical schools in Ontario for an unforgettable experience. At OMSW, students are be able to meet and network with future colleagues, hear from some of the most influential leaders in health care, and expand their procedural skills.
This year, OMSW will be hosted November 2-3 in Ottawa, Ontario. The theme for OMSW this year is "Legacies of Leadership," which will emphasize the importance of leadership in medicine. Medical students are trained to become leaders, and leadership is a core competency which medical schools across Ontario recognize and integrate into their curriculums. Ottawa is a city at the heart of Canadian politics and is often considered to be synonymous with leadership in Canada. OMSA believes that there is no better place for students to come witness and explore the meaning of leadership. The vision for OMSW 2018 is to create a conference which encourages students to be confident in their clinical skills, and provide opportunities to learn about effective leadership in medicine.For many years, OMSW has been a rite of passage for medical students. Upper year medical students recount the many fond memories and friends they made over the weekend, and many consider it to be a highlight of one's medical education.Be sure to check in with the VP Externals at your school for more details as they develop.Learn More
