Discovery Days in Health Sciences are one-day events that give secondary school students (primarily Grade 11) who are interested in science the opportunity to explore a variety of career options in medicine and the health sciences.
A Discovery Day comprises a dynamic keynote lecture, interactive workshops and a career panel discussion. Students gain a clear picture of what it would be like to be a health professional by interacting with researchers, clinicians and educators in their real-life work setting.
This year, CHRIM welcomed grade 11 and 12 students into Dr. Ayesha Saleem’s lab for a workshop on Extracellular Vesicles: The cell’s email system. Below are some picture’s from their visit. We hope they left inspired to continue their education in science!
