Orientation Events


Welcome Webinar: A session designed for students to learn more about the IHPME community! This is a great opportunity to connect with other incoming students and learn about the different IHPME programs, the IHPME GSU, ways to get involved this year… and more! Participants will also receive early access to our brand new graduate studies resource guide. 

Fireside Chats with IHPME Faculty: Don’t miss out on the opportunity to meet some of our lovely IHPME faculty! Join us for three conversations with various guest speakers as they talk about their experiences at IHPME and in the health field. Each session will end with a Q&A period. 

Life at IHPME Webinar: Join upper year IHPME students as they share their experiences and offer valuable advice on ways to get involved during your graduate studies. Our student panel will be followed by breakout room sessions for incoming students (Q&A period) and returning students (roundtable discussion). 

Small Group Meet-Ups: An opportunity for incoming and returning students to get outside, connect in-person with classmates, and explore the city (refreshments will be provided!). Physical distancing will be maintained and group sizes will be limited. 

Virtual Happy Hour & Trivia: Grab something to sip on and get to know your peers in an informal format with fun & engaging games that are sure to build camaraderie and a sense of community!

Photo Scavenger Hunt: Spend time exploring your neighbourhood during our photo scavenger hunt! Your submissions will be used to create ‘explore’ guides for other IHPME students. There will be prizes for this event!
