conhIT to search for healthcare IT talents
In order to bring the health IT industry and healthcare institutions together with potential employees, conhIT - Connecting Healthcare IT, which runs from 17 to 19 April 2018 in Berlin - is organising a comprehensive programme of events.
The conhIT Newcomer Award will be the highlight of the career service events at the show. The awards will recognise the best theses by Bachelor’s and Master’s degree graduates of Medical Informatics, eHealth, Health IT, Health Management, Health Economics and Healthcare Management. Students have until 28 February 2018 to apply and can submit their entries online to the conhIT website. A panel of experts representing science and industry will examine all the entries and choose the theses which display a particularly practical approach towards improving healthcare in the long term through IT.
After all the entries have been examined the authors of the five best Bachelor’s and Master’s degree theses will be announced at the end of March 2018. They will subsequently be able to give brief presentations of their work at conhIT. Based on the experts’ assessments and these presentations the winners will then be honoured with their awards. They will receive prize money totalling up to 2,000 euros and details will be publicised in a special edition of the magazine ’GMS Medizinische Informatik, Biometrie und Epidemiologie’ (MIBE).
From 17 to 19 April 2018 around 400 newcomers are expected to attend conhIT, which combines an Industrial Fair, Academy, Congress and Networking Events, in Berlin. Initial contact can be made in the Career Area at the Career Workshop which will be followed by a Career Speed Networking Event. Also of use is the conhIT Career Guide which lists potential employers. conhIT career service events specifically target students who will soon be graduating and want to get started in a career.
