The annual Health Tech Jam for UIC students inspires innovation and cultivates collaboration in a fast-paced, education-filled team competition.

Teams of five to seven students, grouped to provide a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, will come together for a multi-day event to use technology to change healthcare in our community and the world.

Our partners at Altus Academy will share feedback from their school families to ground the Health Tech Jam in real-world public health concerns from the community.

Students attending this event will:

  • Work in teams with students from a variety of fields to brainstorm impactful technologies
  • Participate in educational workshops on topics like app design, clinical health technology and more
  • Pitch their final idea to a team of judges to win the HTJ Innovation Award.


Participants will come from UIC’s College of Applied Health Sciences, including Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Biomedical Visualization and Rehabilitation Sciences, plus the Department of Bioengineering.
