Welcome to ClinHacks, The Clinician Engineer Hub's first hackathon! On March 13-14th, 2021, we are virtually bringing together over 250 innovators from all over the world to come up with solutions to clinical challenges. 

It is no secret that there is a growing need for innovation and technology in the healthcare field. To address challenges in healthcare, collaboration between medical professionals, engineers, designers and entrepreneurs is critical.

Our focus is to inspire students and early professionals with all experience levels and backgrounds to create, explore and design the future of healthcare.

Kuzoclass Prize

The hack with the most feasible business idea will receive $6000 worth of Kuzoclass classes to build your hackathon project into a real startup!

Caring for Remote Communities

The past year has shown us the importance of being connected. For the first time in recent history, people dwelling near urban centres were unable to easily access services in-person due to social distancing restrictions. This inability to easily access services is a common and long-standing problem for remote communities. It becomes even more serious when health care is considered. Services like medical consultation, diagnosis and treatment all become more difficult to deliver. Your challenge is to create a technology solution that can help improve the delivery of a particular medical service to remote communities. Winners will each receive a $40 Etsy gift card to shop local, small businesses.
