Event description

Description

YOU are invited to participate in our inaugural hackathon event titled the Surgical Healthcare Challenge on behalf of the organizers MIT Hacking Medicine and the American College of Perioperative Medicine.

WHY: While surgical and anesthesia care in the US is exceptional in many respects, some areas could be significantly improved. To address some of the challenges we plan to hold a 48-hour hackathon.

100 HACKERS/ATTENDANTS will be organized in teams of 3-7 individuals. Each team will be assigned 1-2 mentors.

TEAMS will consist of doctors, patients, STUDENTS, nurses, engineers, developers, designers, business people, insurance, and policy experts.

PRIZES: A total of up to $35,000 will be given to the top 3 teams.

COST: Includes breakfast and lunch for both days, and dinner for first day.

$40 Early Bird Students / $50 after September 15

$199 Early Bird Professionals (non-students) / $249 after September 15
