We love to organize contests. But until now, all our contests were for bloggers, medical professionals, or scientists. Times have changed. Welcome to My Medical Museum competition! This is a contest in which everyone can participate and have a fun and learning experience in the process.
Basically, we want you to visit your local medical museum, and file a report about it.
Chances are that no matter where you live, there is a medical museum nearby. Maybe it’s an overlooked building in the center of your city, or a hospital library. Inside, you’ll find bizarre specimens, important documents, and yes, medical gadgets.
This contest is an opportunity to showcase your medical museum’s treasures, as well as to document your local medical history and explain how clinicians and scientists in your area contributed to medicine. So, make a presentation and tell everyone a fascinating story.
Medgadget is sponsoring this competition along with Dr. Allen Roberts, aka GruntDoc.
To get everyone on equal footing, we’ve implemented a dynamic publishing platform where you create an online presentation. The My Medical Museum website will let you upload pictures, file reports, embed videos, and make a presentation that will impress the judges. Collaboration is fine, too — form a group and grant access so your teammates can contribute.
The Grand Prize is a brand-new Wi-Fi 32GB Apple iPad, no less.
So, what else are you waiting for? Gather your friends, family or fellow medical geeks and head over to explore your local medical museum. Develop your presentation and finalize it by Sunday, June 27, 2010.
The winner will be announced on Monday, July 5, 2010 here on Medgadget. All final decisions will be made by our editors.
