Mayo Clinic Health System IMPACT Program
November 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
IMPACT— Innovative Minds Partnering to Advance Curative Therapies
The Mayo Clinic Health System IMPACT program, in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, gives undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in novel hypothesis generation to address real-world health questions alongside Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System scientists and physicians.
This year’s IMPACT challenge topic is in cardiology. Student teams will present a poster at the 2019 Symposium, to be held March 9 at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. In addition to the poster presentations, the top 10 teams will give oral presentations. The IMPACT Symposium also offers students networking opportunities with physicians and scientists from Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System. Each student on the winning team is awarded a $1,000 cash prize and a paid summer internship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Each team of 2-4 students will require one faculty mentor. Teams of students from multiple disciplines are especially encouraged.
