COVID cancellations


Dear MED friends and colleagues,

During this extraordinary time our volunteer doctors and healthcare heroes need to focus on COVID-19. As a festival focused on medicine we also have an extra responsibility to keep you safe. We have therefore made the decision to cancel the Los Angeles, London and Toronto festivals this year.

We’re continuing to review plans for NYC and Sydney in consultation with our volunteers and host partners. For now, we’re continuing with the planning and we’ll update you if the situation changes.

MED is a true collaboration of host partners and volunteers in each city. We want to thank everyone for their support and commitment over the last few months and also to you for registering to attend. We promise we’ll be back in 2021 with an even bigger and better program.

We hope you’ll join us then. Stay well!
