The Biomedical Entrepreneurial Network (BEN) at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is excited to host our annual Healthcare Innovation Summit! We welcome students across all domains to come together and learn about exciting new developments in healthcare innovation from our various keynote speakers and workshops. We also host our annual Summit Pitch Competition, where teams compete to tackle various healthcare problems. Do you have the next big idea in healthcare innovation?
