On Saturday 23 February 2019, Doha College will be holding their sixth annual Medical Review School Conference at their Al Waab campus in Doha, Qatar. For this event, Doha College has once again partnered with COBIS to extend invites to British schools across the world.
This event brings together aspiring medical students and industry experts to present on some of the key medicinal challenges of the 21st century. The Medical Review Conference allows students who are thinking of following medicine to enhance their skills and boost their university applications.
For this one-day conference, interested schools are invited to enter teams from Years 11, 12 and 13 to research recent developments in medicine and deliver a short presentation about it.
The morning session will see teams split into six break-out rooms, where teacher judges will rank each team’s presentation. The four teams with the highest scores will then go forward to the afternoon session, where they will present to an expert judging panel. The final judging panel will comprise doctors and health professionals from Elite Medical Center and Hamad Medical Corporation, who will assess and challenge the finalists in the afternoon session.

There are only three top prizes.
Flight and accommodation in Doha. May be subsidized by the school.
Students should be high achievers in subjects such as biology and have both skill and passion for the medical fields/anatomy. They will be required to devise medical solutions to real world problems. Therefore, engineering students may also be interested in competing.
They will not be required to build anything or conduct ground-breaking research but will have to have sufficient research + presentation skills, as well as a foundational understanding of their topics.
The event is just one day, but the preparation will take weeks. Students will be required to do research, prepare abstracts and devise solutions to the various stated problems, and should, therefore, be willing to commit significant time to their entries.
Schools need to fill in our online application form to register their teams.
