Medical app contest announced

Todd Vandenbark

From the “idea lab” at the American Medical Association comes the “AMA App Challenge,” a contest “asking U.S.-licensed physicians, residents/fellows and medical students for their ideas for medical apps. These App Ideas should be designed for use by physicians, residents/fellows and/or medical students in their daily careers.” Two grand prizes will be awarded that include:

  • $1,000 AMEX Gift Card
  • $1,500 Apple Store Gift Card
  • Trip for two to New Orleans

Guidelines, rules and FAQs for the contest are available on line. (Thanks to the iMedicalApps blog for alerting us to this opportunity.)

Students enrolled in medical programs at the University of Utah have access to a number of mobile apps through the Eccles Health Sciences Library website.

Do you have a favorite mobile app? If so, tell us about it!
