Tufts University School of Medicine and MedStart Healthcare Startup Competition

January 17, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - January 19, 2014 @ 7:00 pm

MedStart is an annual healthcare startup competition that lasts three days, this upcoming year from January 17-19, 2014, held at Tufts University School of Medicine.  We will bring together diverse minds from relevant fields of study (medicine, business, technology, engineering) to collaborate over a weekend to create a startup company.  Participants will form teams at the event, and work towards creating a viable healthcare business plan to present to a panel of judges on Sunday evening.
Note: MedStart is open to anyone in the Boston area, including any working professionals or any student from any University, not just Tufts University.
