MedQuest 2024: Exploring Fields of Study and Careers in the Health Sciences

Location: Via WebEx

Date: 28 August 2024


Hey There!

Are you interested in pursuing an exciting career as a health professional? As a high school student, it is not too early to start thinking about your future career path. Creating a specific goal beyond high school can be challenging without the necessary information to make an informed decision. Let us help you improve your knowledge in areas including admission requirements, realistic career expectations in the health sciences, and the vast opportunities available in our province.

What is MedQuest Virtual?

MedQuest Virtual is an exciting, career-oriented one day virtual event for all students in grades 10-12 in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador interested in careers in the health sciences. Students will be introduced to many health professions such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical, and occupational therapies. These health sciences careers and special topics will be presented through lectures, guest speakers, and virtual tours of various health facilities.

We are also excited to announce, new to summer 2024, in-person tours of the Faculty of Medicine! Students will tour the Anatomy Suites, 3D Printing Lab, and much more. Tours will be held Thursday, August 29, 2024.

Tours are optional and space is limited.


Upon completion of MedQuest, learners will be able to:

  • Identify the MUN entry requirements to programs and various career options in health sciences professions including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical and occupational therapy.
  • Explore examples of career paths practicing professionals choose in the health sciences, along with their scope of practice.
  • Describe a typical “day in the life” of a learner within MUN health sciences programs.
  • Discuss interprofessional and collaborative learning models while studying and training to be a health science professional.
  • Identify services available to all Memorial University students through Memorial University Students Union
