Applications now open for Monash Healthcare Innovation Summer Scholarships

Applications for the Monash Healthcare Innovation Summer Scholarships (HISS) Program for 2020/2021 are now open!

Supported by Monash Partners Academic Health Science Centre, the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering and Monash Young MedTech Innovators, the scheme will connect clinicians who seek a technological solution to frontline health problems with undergraduate and masters students from across IT and engineering.

Clinicians and students will work together for 12 weeks (Monday 30 November 2020 to Friday 19 February 2021) to evaluate concepts for new technologies and create innovative proof-of-concept prototypes.

This initiative will enable clinicians to:

  • Mentor and work with highly motivated interdisciplinary teams of students to validate tech-agnostic concepts or ideas to address clinical need
  • Identify routes for collaboration between disciplines and departments
  • Learn about information and human-centered design in healthcare and how research can be translated into practice in a real-world setting.

Applications close Friday 30 October.

Successful applications will be notified on Wednesday 11 November and matched with students based on interest, background and skillset.
