Millennium Fellowship Project: MedLattice

Medical Students have a wide field of study but it is deficient of the ability to empower them with the necessary technological skills relevant in this current age. In the nearest future technological skills cannot be separated form healthcare and to remain relevant in the nearest future, ICT skills are inevitable. The need of equipping medical student with ICT capabilities by exposure to ICT knowledge and skills right from the University level of education gave birth to MedLattice. MedLattice is Missioned with creating an community of ICT oriented Medical Students and in the process achieving the SDG 17 and SDG 9, through empowerment with ICT skills such as Artificial intelligence , software development , Application development, web development, some knowledge in electrical electronics and at the same time igniting innovative spirit amongst them.
We would train 50 medical students in my campus in ICT knowledge and skills within a 4 month spanned boot camp program. Students would be grouped into 5 different groups , where each group will work on solving a health care related problem in the society during and after the ICT bootcamp program. We would publish and build at least 3 health care related social impact projects for every ICT bootcamp program completed. ICT Bootcamps would be a biannual program.
