Primary Healthcare

Generally speaking, primary healthcare is, or should be, the first level of contact people have with the health system. Prevention and promotion of wellness are of increasing importance in primary care, as it is the care environment where health problems are best identified, managed or referred in the context of early intervention.

CIMIT's overall mission is to improve healthcare by seeking, selecting and supporting teams of clinicians and technologists. A goal in this particular competition is to offer major awards to encourage undergraduate and graduate engineering students to develop technological innovations that have potential to enhance patient care at that initial point of contact with the healthcare system.

The annual CIMIT Prize for Primary Healthcare has been made possible through a generous gift from the Gelfand Family Charitable Trust.

"The challenge of delivering affordable excellent primary care presents an opportunity for those students interested in engineering solutions to make truly profound contributions" said Mark Gelfand, a principal in the trust. "I am pleased with CIMIT's success in the first two years of running this unique annual competition. Innovation in primary care could help many families, and I am confident that much good will result from these inspiring projects. "
