Question normal

Hi Arshya,

Congrats on being a XMed graduate! I attended the program back when it was still called Futuremed and we lived in barracks on the Nasa Ames campus for a week. One of my fav conferences for meeting people and learning about the cutting intersection of tech and med.

Right now we're planning a first-of-its-kind meded hackathon at Tufts in Jan (tuftsmedstart.com). We're putting some amazing technology like Oculus Rift, Myo armbands, open API's and open testing data sets in the hands of professors, students and hackers to see what they can come up with. Having just come back from Xmed, what start-ups and good ideas are out there in this space? What were the key take aways about improving training at all levels from med school to CME? I'd love to find some way to integrate these examples (maybe even the companies themselves) into the hack.
