From Sling Health’s website:
Sling Health STL the founding chapter of a national student-run non-profit organization founded in 2013 by medical students at Washington University in St. Louis in order to confront the surplus of unsolved clinical problems they encountered within the hospitals. Our organization brings together a diverse group of students, clinicians, and local entrepreneurs to develop and commercialize medtech solutions that ultimately improve patient health care.
- Our main objectives are:
To make medical entrepreneurship attainable for students and physicians
- To integrate students from the schools of medicine, business, engineering, and arts & sciences to develop novel devices and software in order to tackle unmet clinical needs.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Twenty-five students attended.
Ramin was a good speaker. He went over different types of patents and how to get more involved in medical entrepreneurship. He also invited students to contact him for more opportunities. We usually expect a larger audience; however, our anatomy curriculum was changed this year to become more strenuous so fewer M1 students showed up. We felt the event was helpful for the students. We hope in the future to emphasize how a medical student can get involved more so during the talk.” ~Maggie Wang, SLU-BRI co-president
