OMSW 2019
"All In: Inspire, Innovate, Integrate"

 

The Ontario Medical Students’ Weekend (OMSW) 2019
will be held from September 27th to 29th at the Hilton Toronto,
hosted by the University of Toronto and
the Ontario Medical Students Association (OMSA)

 

Ontario Medical Students’ Weekend (OMSW) is an annual event gathering medical students from all Ontario medical schools to learn about a variety of topics related to medicine. Students will assemble at the University of Ottawa 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.

Students are invited to Toronto's downtown core 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 to give students the opportunity to participate in the broader field of healthcare.

This year's theme is "All In: Inspire, Innovate, Integrate" and the dynamic and thriving city of Toronto is the ideal location for this year's conference. Alongside numerous research facilities, hospitals and academic institutions, Toronto has the privilege of housing one of the best medical schools in the world. Not only is Toronto the largest city in Canada, it is the heart of business, politics, research and innovation. As you know, the city boasts a multicultural mosaic and creative energy that makes it the perfect location to support the growth of Ontario's future healthcare leaders.

Important Registration Information

 

Ticket Pricing

  • Hotel tickets: $250
  • Non-Hotel Tickets: $200 (48 tickets available to UofT students only)

Note: A 3.5% credit card processing fee will be added to your ticket price​, and the event is not-for-profit.

 

Step 1: Pre-Registration (Mon, Aug 26, 2019)

NOTE: Pre-registration will be open before ticket sales. During this timeframe you will be able to create an account, but tickets will not yet be available for purchase.

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, speaker/workshop preferences, 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 and workshop/speaker preferences.

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 (Tue, Sept 3, 2019)

NOTE: Ticket purchase is transferable but non-refundable.

Quotas for each school/campus are determined by class sizes. All tickets will be released and registration will open at a different time for each school (see specific times listed above).

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. Because we have limited spots for each school/campus, registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that if you haven't already pre-resgistered, you may still do so at this time and purchase a ticket if any remain.

 

Step 3 (optional): Preference Changes & Ticket Transfer (Mon, Sep 9, 2019)

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

After purchasing the ticket, you can log into your account any time before the deadline to edit your account information and preferences through the "Edit" tab under "My 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.
