It is no secret that there is a growing need for innovation and technology in the healthcare field. When healthcare professionals are the end users of clinical innovation, but not involved in the design process, the solutions are less effective. I created ClinHacks after noticing how difficult it is to collaborate in a way that includes designers, entrepreneurs, doctors, nurses, scientists and engineers.
01 What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is best described as an invention marathon. Atendees collaborate to build awesome creations over the course of a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
02 How much does it cost to attend?
Nothing. Attending ClinHacks is free.
03 Who can participate?
Any student or recent graduate (within the past year) anywhere in the world can attend. Students both at the undergraduate and graduate level in any field are encouraged to attend.
03 I'm not a student, can I still get involved?
Of course! We are looking for passionate mentors, speakers and sponsors with experience in tech, medicine or entrepreneurship. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
03 Can I still come if I've never coded before?
For sure! Learning is a main part of the experience. Our online mentors and beginner workshops will be there to help you out. There is more to a project than just the technical aspect - brainstorming, creativity, communication skills and business acumen are all important.
03 Does ClinHacks have a Code of Conduct?
Yes. ClinHacks is an inclusive and safe space for all participants. We expect participants to uphold the MLH Code of Conduct.
03 How do I find a team?
Teams can be 2-4 people and you can either come in with a team, or find a team on our Slack workspace. Working alone is completely acceptable as well.
As a completely free event to participants, the hackathon is 100% sponsor-funded. We need your help to make this hackathon possible and enticing to students!
