NOVEMBER 13th - 15th

CUCOH 

PARTNERS IN PROGRESS

 

 

 
 

Welcome to the Canadian Undergraduate Conference on Healthcare 

HOsted by QUeen's University

 

The Canadian Undergraduate Conference on Healthcare (CUCOH) is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to engage in seminars, debates, and workshops about the Canadian healthcare system. Being the largest student-run conference at Queen’s and of its kind in the country, CUCOH brings inspirational speakers and hands-on workshops to over 375 students each year. Perspectives on the ever changing field of healthcare are shared and students are molded into the leaders of the future.

This year, the 11th annual conference will be held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario from November 13th-15th, 2015. Students from coast to coast in all programs and faculties will unite to discuss our theme this year, “Partners in Progress.” To us, this really speaks to the interdisciplinary aspect of healthcare in that it truly takes a team of professionals with diverse backgrounds to provide comprehensive knowledge for one another. Additionally, it is with this breadth of information that we can continue to inspire and innovate one another in improving and advancing the healthcare system as it is today to provide for the better tomorrow. We cannot express our excitement in preparing to host another unforgettable conference this year! 

On behalf of the entire CUCOH 2015 Team, we look forward to meeting you at CUCOH 2015,
Vivienne Hsu and Jennifer Williams
CUCOH 2015 Co-Chairs
