MEDHACK: COMMUNITY

WHAT IS MEDHACK?

MedHack is Melbourne’s premier student-run Healthcare Innovation hackathon. Every year, we bring students together at the intersection of design, engineering, healthcare and entrepreneurship in a 48 hour sprint to help reimagine the future of healthcare.

MedHack is open to all regardless of home university, discipline, creed or experience - you don’t have to be from Monash University or studying biomedical engineering, industrial design or medicine to join.

MedHack is a values driven event. We’re passionate about celebrating diversity, bringing about collaboration and empowering students and co-designers to make an impact.

ON THE DAY

Over 150+ students from across Melbourne will compete online for cash and prizes and the honour of winning MedHack 2022.

We will match you and your team with a Co-Designer (a person with unique life experience and two people with expertise in the field) and you will have the opportunity to learn from their knowledge to build something that matters and will make a difference to their lives.

We had our biggest Medhack ever in 2022 with 150 Participants! Our 2022 theme recognised the overwhelming magnitude and complexity in the problems plaguing public and private hospitals alike, which were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Hospitals and their effective operation are integral to protecting public health and reducing the hardships felt by patients, staff, families and wider communities.
