Elsevier Hacks.
Together we can change the face of medicine.

Bringing medical students from across the world together with innovators in coding and design to build solutions that would solve challenges in medical education, Elsevier Hacks was a unique 48-hour event which took place alongside the Association of Medical Educators Conference in Helsinki from 25th-27th August, 2017.

In a collaborative workspace in Helsinki, twenty medical students from across the world met for the first time with experts in coding and design to develop prototypes that solve challenges in medical education. Eight teams worked tirelessly for 48-hours going through an iterative process of product ideation and development before presenting and demonstrating their newly created solutions to a panel of judges consisting of medical education, business, technology and marketing experts.
