Ontario Student Medical Education Research Conference (OSMERC)

The Ontario Student Medical Education Research Conference (OSMERC) was established for students, by students, and aims to provide a platform for research in the areas of medical and health professions education. We encourage submissions on a broad range of topics from assessment and feedback, curriculum design, novel pedagogies, student and practitioner wellbeing, artificial intelligence in healthcare education and practice, and beyond.



This year, OSMERC will be hosted in a hybrid format on Saturday, April 8th 2023, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EST). The in-person portion of the conference will be taking place at the Chestnut Conference Centre in Toronto. Trainees from all health professions programs and institutions are welcome to participate!

Abstract submissions will open on Monday, January 23, 2023 and close Friday, February 10, 2023 at 11:59 PM (EST). General registration will open closer to the conference day. All student presenters must also register to attend; please look out for an email from our team with further instructions. 

We look forward to meeting you on April 8, 2023!
