The McGill Faculty of Medicine Clinical Innovation Competition (CLIC) was inspired by McGill alumnus Dr. Raymond Hakim with the goal of supporting members of our Faculty of Medicine community in conceiving and developing ideas with the potential to have a direct impact on Canadian or global health care.
On May 22nd at 5 p.m., five finalists will pitch their initiatives as they compete for the prestigious Hakim Family Innovation Prize and the Marika Zelenka Roy Innovation Prize before a panel of esteemed judges. A networking event and cocktail will take place as the judges deliberate, and the winning teams will be announced at the closing of the competition.
The winners of the MI4 Innovation Prize and the Steinberg Centre Simnovation Prize will also be announced during the ceremony. All prizes consist of both a monetary award and credits for services to support the development of proof of concept and preparation for commercialization or implementation. For more information on the prizes, please CLIC here.
We sincerely hope you are able to join us for this event as we celebrate innovation in health care at McGill.
