Here you can see some impressions
from the previous OMIDs:

1. What is the OMID?
The OMID is a hands-on workshop where master, bachelor and PhD students work together with medical doctors and Post-Docs,to identify challenges in the healthcare system and search in interdisciplinary teams for solutions.

2. What can you expect from the OMID?
It is a workshop with a lot of teamwork, outcomes and movement. You will see that it is possible to develop a business model from the scratch in less than one day. Some of our former participants have their own startup-projects now! The best ideas generated during the OMID will have the chance to present their ideas to the Medical Innovations Foundation ( and be recommended for a participation
in the MedTech Startup School 2018 ( and the incubation program by the Medical Innovations Incubator GmbH (

3. What if you can´t join the OMID, (and are a medical professional with a medicine related education and practical experience) but want to realize a medical innovation idea?
In this case the Medical Innovations Foundation has a competition for ideas for medical innovations:äten/ideenwettbewerb/.
You can apply there with your idea till January, 23rd 2018. If you will be selected to present your idea in front of the scientific board of the foundation (Prof. Hämmerle, Prof. Grathwohl, Prof. Rodemann, Prof. Rosenstiel, Prof. Zrenner), your idea will get the chance to be selected for a further development during the MedTech Startup School and the Medical Innovations Incubator´s incubation program.
