Operation Med School – Volunteer Opportunities

Operation Med School is an international student-led nonprofit organization that aims to empower high school students through connection to the medical field. Through our annual conferences in Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, and New York, we provide students with opportunities to attend skill-building workshops, connect with peers, and interact with medical professionals. In light of COVID-19, Operation Med School Vancouver will be hosting a six-part webinar series through February/March on the theme of “Reimagining Medicine”.

We are currently in the process of hiring associates ambassadors for our conference to promote our conference within their respective communities and provide assistance to the executive team. The deadline for applications is October 30, 2020 at 11:59 PST. The application and information about the roles can be found here.

However, if you are simply interested in registering for the conference, please email and we will be sure to update you when ticket sales commence.

If you are interested in our event, we encourage you to follow us on Instagram to stay updated on our event.

Vancouver BC



While so much of our world has changed this year due to COVID-19, our commitment to outreach and program delivery remains the same. Although we can’t be onsite for an in-person event this Fall, we invite high school students and teachers to meet us online to explore careers in medicine and the health sciences.

Our modified virtual half day program comprises a keynote lecture, an interactive workshop and a career panel discussion. As always, participants will have the opportunity to select their own workshop. Please note that, although our delivery model has been adapted temporarily, the program is still considered an individual learning opportunity and workshop spaces continue to be limited. As we have in the past, we ask you to identify select Grade 10 – 12 students interested in science to attend the event.

Our virtual event will also include two 15-minute breaks, one of which offers participants an optional “Peer Networking Opportunity”. Virtual display ‘booths’ may also be available.

Participants will require access to a computer, headphones, video capabilities (optional), internet connection and a quiet space. This may mean they attend virtually from home that morning or are in front of a computer in a dedicated space at school
