We are a student-led organization that provides students a platform for problem-based, interdisciplinary healthcare innovation for social impact. Our 'hackathons' are innovation competitions that facilitate early application of classroom knowledge to real-world issues, develop teamwork skills, and improve communication of ideas across disciplines. We present innovation challenges sourced directly from the needs of outside healthcare organizations to give students the opportunity to address existing specific problems in healthcare. We promote the entrepreneurial spirit by exposing students to what it takes to create a feasible, marketable solution, and provide students with resources to move forward in the innovation pipeline. To help students with human-centered design and prototyping, we provide mentorship from industry experts and workshops for students to learn both technical and soft skills.
As a team member, you will be expected to bring in your creativity, a strong initiative, good communication skills, and an excellent work ethic to make our events as successful as possible in fostering student innovation. If you have any questions about time commitment for a specific role, please contact us.
You must be a GW student to apply.
