Students at Queen Mary, University of London have the chance to solve problems in healthcare and win £1,000 by using their creative ideas and entrepreneurial skills in a new technology competition!

The QHealth competition is open to all Queen Mary students. You will work with medical practitioners and computer science experts to identify healthcare problems then design a technology solution, such as an app, website, hardware or software, to improve orthopaedic healthcare.

Professor Peter McOwan is Queen Mary’s Vice Principal for External Relations and Public Engagement and head of QM’s apps venture QApps. He says:

QHealth is the first programme of its kind in the UK. It is open to all students at Queen Mary - you don’t have to have any previous experience in business, technology or healthcare to enter, as long as you have an entrepreneurial mind and are willing to work as part of a team.
 

In addition to a cash prize, the competition will put you in contact with a host of experts who will help them develop their idea and skills, and prepare winners to pitch to a panel who could provide funding to help the winning student’s ideas become reality.
QHealth will launch on Wednesday 12 June at 6pm at the Queen Mary Bioenterprises (QMB) Innovation Centre in Whitechapel.
