The event is going to be designed in a breakout room style. Participants are going to be placed in a meticulously designed scenario that spans from room to room. Using elements of the rooms and given clues, teams will try to escape within a pre-determined time limit. Participants are to use their intelligence, reasoning, teamwork and of course interprofessional collaboration to escape. The breakout room will incorporate subjects relevant to health sciences.

Throughout the night you will try to match with as many locks/keys as you can (with the added bonus of getting to know your future healthcare colleagues).

When you and a new friend have a compatible lock and key, your names will be entered into a draw for a prize!  What better way to reunite with old friends and make some new ones!
