The Project: A Medical Education Hackathon

A Hackathon is a collaborative event bringing together different players from the world of education, healthcare, industry, engineering, design, and the territory, as well as patients, in order to develop innovative solutions in Medical Education. Taking place from August 26th to 28th during the AMEE Conference, it will bring together participants and partners from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and AMEE.

For three days, online participants and participants in Lyon assembled in interdisciplinary teams will endeavor to respond to various challenges with concrete and innovative solutions that service the community. Each team will be able to rely on the help of mentors, who will be experts from their respective domains.

At the end of the Hackathon, a jury will select the best projects to be awarded a prize that will enable their completion.
