Event description
MEDHACK is Melbourne’s premier student-run Healthcare Innovation hackathon. http://medhack.com.au/

About this Event

http://medhack.com.au/

Every year, we bring students at all levels* and professionals, welcome from any institution, together at the intersection of design, engineering, healthcare and entrepreneurship in a 48 hour sprint to help reimagine the future of healthcare.

This year’s theme is assistive technology.

That means any type of technology (and we do mean anything!) that tackles a challenge associated with disability: apps, new fangled grabby thingys, autonomous wheelchairs, and vests that vibrate to music.

If it improves someone’s quality of life, you’re in good stead.

Teams of five will be matched with a Co-Designer, a person experiencing a disability, and you will have 48 hours to build something that is awesome and addresses challenges that may be faced by your Co-Designer.

This year, MedHack is being run by MYMI in collaboration with SEED, and we are proud to acknowledge the MedTech Actuator and MedTech's Got Talent (MTGT) as co-partners. We would also like to acknowledge the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering (MIME), the Monash Engineering Department, and the Generator as partners, and thank them for their support.

Before you click register to get your ticket, here's something to keep in mind:

The ticket type helps us ensure a balanced and diverse talent pool for the event to ensure that you have the most awesome time possible creating cool things with people from different backgrounds.

Please pick the ticket type that aligns most closely with your degree or industry so we can do that!

* Students at all levels are welcome! Whether you're an undergraduate, PhD, or post-doctorate, we'd love to see you!
