Our national Discovery Days program aims to educate, encourage and inspire high school students who are curious about careers in medicine and health sciences. 

This event features a captivating keynote lecture, interactive workshops, and a thought-provoking career panel discussion. We invite participation from community practitioners, faculty, trainees, staff and students with a passion for outreach to youth.

The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame is committed to fostering inclusion and supporting the leadership efforts at Canadian universities to change the diversity pathway to medicine and the health sciences. We encourage people who self-identify as Indigenous, Black or a Person of Colour, or who come from a rural or known disadvantaged socioeconomic background to join us.
