Medical Grand Challenge

Date/Time
18 Aug, Friday, 4:00 pm
Venue
Description

 

 

The Medical Grand Challenge (MGC) is a studentā€led medical innovation programme. Medical students identify unmet healthcare needs and work collaboratively with students from other faculties, forming interdisciplinary teams to explore creative and out-of-the-box solutions to address these issues.

 

 

This competition runs for a year, starting with a soft launch in August 2016 and culminating in a final judging cum showcase night in August 2017, where projects will be scored for business strategy, creativity, design quality and healthcare impact by a panel of judges. Winners will be awarded $20,000 worth of cash prizes.

 

All discoveries begin with a single question and the Challenge intends to nurture a culture of curiosity in our undergraduates. We hope to encourage creativity and entrepreneurship and build a generation of healthcare professionals who not only seek to serve, but seek to improve. Given the immense value of multi-disciplinary work, the Challenge also seeks to foster relationships between students of different faculties and backgrounds.

 

The Challenge organizing team is itself an inter-faculty collaboration, being led by students from the Medicine, Engineering, and Business faculties.
