Medical Grand Challenge

Date/Time
07 Sep, Saturday, 4:45 pm - 7:30 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH) 1 to 3 & LT37
Description

The Medical Grand Challenge (MGC) is a student‐led medical innovation program started by the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS Medicine). It aims to encourage medical students to identify unmet healthcare needs and to work collaboratively with students from other faculties to form interdisciplinary teams to explore creative and out-of-the-box solutions to meet these needs. This is a year-long challenge, starting with a soft launch in August/September and culminating in competition night in August/September of the following year.

The team projects will be evaluated and scored for business strategy, creativity, design quality and healthcare impact by an esteemed panel of judges.

Our Aims: We hope to nurture the following attributes (6 ‘C’s) in NUS Undergraduates:

Curiosity – to question things and not accept current limitations

Creativity – to look beyond and find new solutions

Compassion – to care about issues affecting human health and well‐being

Collegiality – to be able to work in teams to achieve more

Collaboration – to find value in working with people from different disciplines and backgrounds

Commercial Intelligence – to be entrepreneurial and understand what works in the marketplace
