OMSW 2023 will be held from October 27th to 29th at the Crowne Plaza Kitchener-Waterloo,
hosted by McMaster University and the Ontario Medical Students Association (OMSA)


Please visit "My Account", and then "Ticket" to purchase.

Ontario Medical Students’ Weekend (OMSW) is an annual event gathering students from all across Ontario to learn about a variety of topics related to medicine. Students will assemble at McMaster University's Waterloo Regional Campus to partake in the largest annual Ontario academic conference for medical delegates. OMSW’s goal is to educate beyond curriculum based objectives, foster collaboration between medical students from all across Ontario, and give students the opportunity to participate in the broader climate of healthcare.

This year's theme is "Once Upon a Time: Your Story in Medicine" and the dynamic and thriving city of Kitchener-Waterloo is the ideal location for this year's conference. Alongside quickly making a name for itself as a technological center for innovation, Kitchener-Waterloo has the privilege of housing McMaster University's Waterloo Regional Campus. Kitchener-Waterloo is becoming a new center for the integration of healthcare and technological innovation, making it the perfect location to support the growth of Ontario's future healthcare leaders.

Important Registration Information

Step 1: Pre-Registration

NOTE: You MUST use your medical school / university email when creating an account.

By clicking on the create an account button, you will be able to enter all of your information (including dietary restrictions, medical school, and credit card information). You will NOT be charged anything until you purchase a ticket at a later date. You can come back to edit your account information freely.

You will receive an email confirmation after creating your account with a link to log in and set your password. You must log in within 24 hrs of creating your account or else the link will expire and you will have to request a new link using the "Request New Password" option on the sidebar. If you do not receive this email within an hour, please check your Junk or Spam folder, and if it is not there please contact us.


Step 2: Registration & Payment 

NOTE: Ticket purchase is transferable but non-refundable.

At this time, because you have already entered all of the necessary information, all you need to do is log in at your school's registration time, go to the "Ticket" tab under "My Account", and click on "Buy Ticket". At this time, your credit card will be charged and you will receive a confirmation message. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that if you haven't already pre-registered, you may still do so at this time and purchase a ticket if any remain.


Step 3: Speaker and Workshop Rankings (To Be Announced Soon!)

A few weeks after ticket sales begin, you will be asked to rank your preferences for speakers and workshops through the "Edit" tab under "My Account". You are able to log into your account anytime before the deadline and change these preferences. These preferences will be used to create a personalized schedule for you to attend select speaker presentations and workshops. To see our selection of speakers and workshops, please visit Speakers and Workshops.

If you do not rank your preferences prior to the deadline, you will be randomly assigned to a selection of speakers and workshops.


Step 4 (Optional): Ticket Transfer

NOTE: You will not be able to purchase another ticket after you have transferred your ticket. Tickets are limited to one purchase per account.

You can also transfer your ticket to another Ontario medical student before this deadline through the "Ticket" tab under "My Account". You can even transfer your ticket to a student who did not pre-register. Simply ask them to make an account and you can then transfer the ticket to them before the deadline. Money exchanges for ticket transfers are the responsibility of the individual students.

After the deadline, no new accounts can be made, and no changes in preferences or ticket transfer can be performed. You will have to email us to change any personal account information.


If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at! We look forward to seeing many of you at our event!
