The Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT) Student Prize for Primary Healthcare competition seeks ideas for technologic innovations with great potential to support and catalyze improved delivery of healthcare at the frontlines of medicine. The top three student entrants (individuals or teams) will receive $150,000, $100,000 and $50,000, respectively*, to help advance their winning clinically-relevant, primary care solutions. (* The funds will be transferred to the student(s) home institution for appropriate dispersal.)
The initial step in this Prize process is CIMIT’s selection of ten Finalists from all submissions received by January 17th, 2011. Each Finalist will be funded with $10,000 to advance their concept to a full submission, due in June. The three major prize winners will then be selected from those ten final submissions. CIMIT’s goal in offering these major awards is to encourage engineering students to develop technological innovations that have great potential to enhance delivery of primary healthcare. Student collaboration and team submissions are strongly encouraged.
This CIMIT Student Prize is made possible because of a generous gift from the Gelfand Family Charitable Trust, which will support the competition annually over the next five years.
