Application or LOI Due Date
Brief Description

As the University of Maryland Medical Center continues to play a pivotal role in providing health care throughout the state of Maryland and beyond, we are working to transform the future of health care while delivering compassionate, high-quality, patient- and family-centered care.

With that in mind, we recently introduced the UMMC Innovation Challenge. This challenge is open to all and serves as a foundational platform, offering individuals and teams from all disciplines the opportunity to compete for three grants of up to $25K and three grants of up to $125K. These ideas are meant to change health care with smart, innovative solutions to current problems, using UMMC as the testing ground to shape the future of medicine.

This competition builds off our UMMC values of excellence and innovation, welcoming each one of you to submit ideas for improved solutions and novel practices that advance health outcomes for our patients, families, or team members located on the Downtown and/or Midtown Campuses.

To better allow for more time to pull together proposals, the Innovation Challenge deadline has been extended through Friday, May 14. Each proposal must include at least one team member is employed by UMMC. For additional program details, proposal requirements, or to submit a proposal for consideration, please visit the UMMC Insider.

As one of only two academic health care systems in Maryland, blazing new trails in medicine is inherent to our organization. So do you have the next big idea that could change the future of health care at UMMC and beyond?
