MedHacks 2018

MedHacks Campus Poster - Standard.png


At MedHacks, we select the top innovative technologists, scientists, healthcare professionals, and engineers to build amazing things together. Hackers across all disciplines, undergraduate and graduate, unite to meet with experts in every part of the medical field here at Johns Hopkins to develop their solutions to healthcare problems across the globe.

For a full 36 hours, these individuals work towards this common goal, developing projects ranging from Parkinson’s telemonitoring, mental health apps, and patient safety/care. Last year we had over 700 participants with sponsors like CVS Health, BlueCross BlueShield, and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine supporting the event. For our fourth hackathon, MedHacks 2018 (Sept 7-9), we are looking to expand the event even further to give more people the space to disrupt healthcare and create the necessary solutions for today’s problems.

Want to be part of this ground-breaking event and help advance medical innovation? Sign up for MedHacks 2018 today – learn more at Apply before July 20th for opportunity for travel reimbursement!
