MICC 2015: MEDLIFE Inter-Chapter Conference

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 8.45.22 PM

The first ever MEDLIFE Inter-chapter Conference Competition will be hosted by Montreal’s McGill chapter. The goal of the event is to create a space for MEDLIFE chapters from across the continent to bond over our common interest in medicine, education, and development and collaborate to solve pressing issues.

Chapters will first attend a MEDTalks-style conference involving a variety of talks given by notable professors, members of the community, and students about current issues in their respective fields. Participants will engage in interactive workshops and a case study competition that will expose them to the real challenges that MEDLIFE faces in the impoverished communities that it serves. Teams will be given a real-world problem facing MEDLIFE related to the theme of the MICC: Unresolved Crises. Given budget constraints and background information about the community and situation involved, the teams will be given several hours to come up with original, feasible solutions to the problem at hand. They will then present their idea to a panel of judges who will decide on the best proposal which will be proposed (and possibly implemented!) by MEDLIFE itself.

The event will occur over a span of two days and all members that take part will receive a certificate of participation. Winners of the competition will receive a special award in recognition of their accomplishment.
