CLINICIANS/RESIDENTS/HEALTHCARE WORKERS

Sling Health is a bioengineering design and entrepreneurship incubator founded in 2013 at Washington University in St. Louis. Students, faculty, staff, and entrepreneurs from across the University of Michigan will team up to tackle unmet needs in healthcare delivery and clinical medicine. Selected students will work in small teams to understand a medical problem and develop a solution. Past teams have gone from concept to prototype within one semester. We are looking for you or your colleagues to submit "problems" which would delineate an unmet clinical need you see or face in the medical field. We would appreciate your submissions here. We will be in contact with you throughout the idea selection process. If you have any questions regarding our organization or problem submissions feel free to contact our exec board at slinghealthteam@umich.edu.

SUBMIT A PROBLEM

Physicians and Nurses: does anything annoy you in the clinic or hospital? Is there a procedure or condition that could use the help of a device or software? Do you think any existing tool needs to be augmented or improved? If you've said yes to any of these questions, please consider submitting your problem. You can choose to have an active role with a potential future team, such as mentoring, or soley submit a problem.
