UBC Okanagan Interdisciplinary Student Health Conference

The UBC Okanagan Interdisciplinary Student Health Conference (IDHC) brings together students from across UBC Okanagan and interns from BC Cancer – Kelowna to showcase their health science research and public health experiences at an engaging presentation event. The 2022 Conference will be held virtually on evening of Thursday March 10, 2022.

Students will select from the following 2 presentation options when submitting their abstract:

  1. 10 minute oral presentation – Present your work with a 10 minute oral presentation, followed by a short Q&A with conference attendees. Limited competitive spots available; students will be selected by the conference planning committee.  Students who request this option and are not selected will be automatically considered for a 3 minute oral presentation spot.
  2. 3 minute oral presentation – Present your work with a 3 minute oral presentation, followed by a short Q&A with adjudicators and conference attendees.

NEW: We have arranged for an optional scientific abstract writing workshop through the Centre for Scholarly Communication. Participants will learn tips and tricks for writing an abstract that clearly and effectively communicates your research and skillsets that will benefit you beyond the IDHC!
