Presenting our first event, MedChat ! On November 25, 2018, we invited secondary school students from across the GTA to listen to key guest speakers and learn more about the field of medicine while enjoying snacks and drinks.
A student at University of Guelph, Dennis Zhu is studying biomedical sciences and is interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine. At MedChat, he introduced students to the pre-undergrad route to medical and veterinary school, as well as provided an in-depth analysis of how to be successful in the field of medicine. He also shared his own experiences in the clinical sciences and applying to Canadian undergraduate programs.
