Baylor Global Hackathon!

Hack-A-Thon Banner


To all BMES Students,


Are you interested in a fun/educational event specifically for medical, science, and engineering students? Then you might be interested in the first annual Baylor Global Hackathon! This will take place from Friday, September 19th to Saturday, September 20th. The objective of the event is to develop new solutions to recurring health challenges across the world. The program will involve creative approaches for third world country medical issues and other resource-barren areas. 

This year's challenge focuses on:

  • Surgical/Procedural Care
  • Women's Health
  • Emergency Response in Low Resource Settings

The winning teams will be given cash prizes as well as the opportunity to have their concepts funded for further development!

Hackathon will be discussed more at the first BMES informational meeting on August 31st. For more information as well as the registration link, click here.  The registration period is open now up until September 9th. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact the Baylor College of Medicine at or contact us at

Thanks! Looking forward to a great upcoming year!
