Join us in HackMed 2021!


HackMed is a free medical hackathon aimed at developing creative solutions to solve problems within medicine and healthcare. A hackathon is commonly described as a programming marathon. It is a 24 hour event during a weekend where small teams (usually 2-4 people) come together to share ideas, learn new things, and build cool things with others. HackMed is a student-run event for individuals from various backgrounds interested in the crossroads of life sciences and technology.


No previous knowledge of programming or science needed.


Throughout the weekend, hackers at HackMed will have a unique opportunity to learn from each other, build awesome projects together, and share them with other hackers. This will allow a multi-disciplinary mesh of people working on developing solutions to pressing problems within healthcare and medicine with the help and support of our experienced mentors.
