This year, Ohio State student org Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) will be hosting its 5th annual Bio-Hack, a weekend-long hackathon full of engineering, learning, networking, and innovation. The event will be held November 4-5, 2023. Bio-Hack gives students a unique experiential learning opportunity to build and engineer health technologies in a welcoming and supportive environment.
The theme this year is Patient Safety. Each year there are over 125,000 patient deaths each year due to medical errors, so BMES wants participants to develop solutions to mitigate the risk of these errors in areas such as medications, surgery, diagnosis, infection, and patient care. This is a great opportunity for students interested in healthcare to experience both the clinical and technical innovations of the field.
Teams can take inspiration from challenges presented by supporting companies and organizations. After the 24-hour “hacking” session is over, teams present their projects to industry experts and judges to get feedback and compete for prizes.
Compete to win up to $500 in prizes with food and drinks provided!
Deadline to register is October 29.
