Hatching Health 2019-2020 | Committee Positions


Vancouver’s leading medical innovation event, The Great Hatch, returns for another year! Following The Great Hatch 2019, we are continuing to foster a community of innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration within British Columbia. Our goal is to increase the collisions that occur between minds in design, engineering, healthcare, and business to solve healthcare issues. 

The Great Hatch 2020 will take place in early March, 2020 at the University of British Columbia. This weekend long event will begin with defining healthcare problems, followed by solution design and rapid prototyping in teams comprised of individuals with wide ranging areas of expertise. In addition to workshops and keynote speeches, the focus will be the solutions and market analyses each team develops. Top teams are awarded monetary and other prizes. Entrepreneurial endeavours often arise from successful projects curated at the Hatch. 

As you can imagine, running this event takes a dedicated team. We aim to work with motivated individuals who want to gain experience in leadership, logistics, event marketing, sponsorship, and graphic design. There will be many networking opportunities and is a great way to learn more about the field of medical innovation. Our current committee consists of students in the fields of medicine, engineering, and design from various universities in the Greater Vancouver Area.
