Work on projects addressing the most pressing issues in healthcare right now!
OMSHacks is the first hackathon in Operation Med School Toronto's history, bringing together like-minded students all across Canada to pitch their innovative ideas and bring forth their best solutions to address health-related problems. OMS Toronto is run by a group of passionate high school students who want to introduce fellow students to an ever-changing career in medicine.
This year OMS Toronto is launching two problem tracks that will be released on the day of the hackathon. Participants will be asked to submit both a pitch (slide deck format) and a video demo of their project.
