Participation Guidelines

  • High school students in BC interested in attending Mini Med School Live must be nominated by their teacher or career advisor as per the Nomination Guidelines below.
  • Nominated students are expected to attend all 4 sessions live (Wednesday, October 7, 14, 21 and 28 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm).
  • Attendance will be tracked. This is a popular program for high school students and each year we have an extensive waitlist of interested participants. Students unable to attend a live session are asked to inform us at reseduc@bcchr.ca as soon as possible, otherwise the virtual seat will be reassigned for the remaining sessions.

Teachers interested in receiving notifications on upcoming events and important registration deadlines are encouraged to join our mailing list. Information is only distributed to mailing list subscribers.

Nomination Guidelines 

  • High school students must be nominated by a teacher to participate in Mini Med School Live. Students cannot nominate themselves.
  • Each school can nominate a maximum of 3 students to participate live. Additional students would be eligible to register themselves for Mini Med School On-Demand.
  • Nomination forms will be available online in late September. To complete the nomination form, the teacher will require each student's name, grade and email address.
  • Nominations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. As space is limited to 200 participants, not all nominations will be guaranteed a seat.
  • Information on this event has been sent to both teachers and career advisors, so teachers are encouraged to discuss potential nominations with each other and select one teacher to submit the school's nominations.
  • As this event is very popular, we recommend for teachers to nominate students as soon as the nomination form is available.

Nominating Students

Please note that the Mini Med School Live registration and waitlist are both full. We are not accepting additional students at this time.
