What is the Global Aspiring Medic Conference (GAMC) about?

 

The Global Aspiring Medic Conference (GAMC) is a one-day conference held in Hong Kong. The conference will provide a mind-stimulating platform for students to gain insight into the many sectors of the medical industry, including Medicine, Biomedical Science, Nursing, and Psychology and the various academic pathways to achieve success in these fields.

 

Through clinical skills workshops and illuminating lectures, we hope this conference will provide students with the necessary information and inspiration to help with their decision making and planning in both their studies and careers.

Who can attend the GAMC?

 

GAMC is open to students (in rising F.4 or Y11 and above) across Asia and invitations will be extended to students in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and China. Unfortunately, students in F.3 or Y10 and below are not allowed to attend. On the day, GAMC organizers will ask for proof of age.

What is included in the registration fee?

 

The registration fee covers entry into Speaker Series by top medical academics and professionals worldwide as well as the Clinic Booth Experience including sharing sessions and admissions talks. The registration fee covers entry into all the events listed under the Schedule except for lunch. Students will need to arrange their own lunch.

 

This event is non-profit and all proceeds will go towards underwriting international speakers’ traveling and accommodation expenses.

What is the refund policy?

 

Registration fees are non-refundable. In the event of Typhoon or Black Rain, there will be no refund. Should registered students not turn up for the event, there will unfortunately be no refund.

 

Please note that while speakers and topics were confirmed at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of the organizer may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers. As such, GAMC reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers if necessary, without any liability to you whatsoever. Any substitutions or alterations will be updated on our web page as soon as possible.
