About Pulse

The field of health sciences is both extremely intriguing and rewarding. Yet, for many students, there exists a lack of exposure to this extremely valuable field. Our team aims to eliminate popular misconceptions of health sciences for secondary and post-secondary students, and to engage students interested in pursuing a career in this field through interactions with physicians, graduate school admission representatives and exemplary post-secondary and graduate students. We provide a platform that opens up conversation between students and distinguished individuals in the field of health sciences

Project Pulse is an organization that hopes to create  yearly conventions throughout Canada. We hope that our conferences familiarize  motivated  students with the world of health sciences. Project Pulse aims to arrange for students to have direct contact with working professionals, university representatives and other distinguished individuals in the field to enable them to learn as much as possible about the field of Healthcare.Students and parents who attend our conferences are given a unique insight into the health sciences and have the opportunity to learn from distinguished speakers and panelists. 

Many students have unanswered questions about this field, and  Pulse aims to give them the answers they are looking for. Through preliminary surveys, it was found that over 50% of high school students consider health sciences as a definite possibility for their future career. Of those students, almost three quarters have unanswered questions regarding universities and field prospects. Project Pulse offers an opportunity for such students to find answers and receive accurate and reliable information about the field they plan on pursuing.

Veeral Desai


Hello! I’m Veeral and I am in my first year at Queens University in the Faculty of Medicine.

I graduated from McMaster, in the Bachelor of Health Sciences Program, with a Child Health specialization. I keep myself occupied through athletics as evidenced by participating in McMaster's Varsity Rowing team and working out. I also love reading and am always willing to try new things. 

I founded Project Pulse as a way to not only help educate other students like me, who one day hope to enter the medical field, but to increase communication between these students and those in the field. My hope is that through Pulse, we can bridge the gap between the professionals, universities and high-school students, by providing everyone with a cost-efficient and informative conference where people can network and interact in a way that will promote the health sciences.

Mijia Murong


Hello! My name is Mijia and I am a first year student at the University of Toronto in the Faculty of Medicine. I graduated McMaster University, in the Bachelor of Health Sciences, with a Global health specialisation.  Some of my hobbies include swimming, piano, sketching, and reading; and I also take an avid interest in video editing and filmmaking.

I have always been interested in the field of medicine; I want to be a doctor because it is the only profession that I have ever considered for myself. My decision to co-found Project Pulse was not only to further associate myself and others with the field of health sciences, but more importantly to aid people like myself, who have never considered becoming anything but a medical professional, determine if this is what they really want. I see Project Pulse as an opportunity to get to know the field by real stories of real people, rather than simply through books, tv shows, and magazine success stories.
