The Annual Bench to Bedside Competition

The Bench to Bedside program culminates in a formal presentation of all team projects at an annual awards competition at the State Capitol in April. The event draws participation from faculty physicians, residents, industry leaders, venture capital firms, and the highest echelons of the University leadership. The first half of the program entails student teams pitching their innovations to judges and spectators. The team projects are evaluated and scored for business strategy, design quality and healthcare impact by a VIP panel of judges.

The second half of the program comprises the awards presentation. Top teams are awarded over $80,000 in prize money to support further project development. Prize categories include Best in Medicine, Best in Engineering, Best in Business, Best “Green” Award, Global Health, Entertainment Arts and Engineering, Consumers Choice, Eccles and Marriot Library, Runner up Awards, and the Grand Prize Award. Family and friends of teams are invited.

Come Join us for this year's competition on April 9th, 2018 and witness Utah's most innovative students compete for prize money and a chance to take their project to the next level!
