The SHM Converge Shark Tank session features brief pitches on three of 2021’s best innovative ideas in hospital medicine. These innovators will present bold, early-stage concepts that may very well transform hospital medicine as we know it. Three world-renowned hospital medicine “Sharks” and you (the audience) will provide constructive, friendly, and often funny feedback to help take these Hospital Medicine Innovators to move to the next level of success! This session will be very interactive with audience participation, so dive into this Shark Tank session ready to learn, laugh, and network with fellow innovators.
Sharks will have the opportunity to “bid” on projects offering up to two hours of project mentorship. In the case of multiple bids, presenters will choose the shark that most closely aligns with their project and/or desired input/feedback. The sharks will also select one overall winner, who will receive complimentary registration to SHM Converge in 2022.
Brief project concepts must be submitted by January 22, 2021, and will be peer-reviewed with the top three being selected for the Shark Tank session held at SHM Converge. In general, concepts should be in the planning stage (or with some preliminary data), bold, innovative, and with high impact in the field of hospital medicine. The finalists will submit draft presentations for feedback by March 18, 2021.
