HACKATHONS

Apply to attend

The RACGP has taken the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 hackathons due to concerns around the spread of COVID-19.

The health and wellbeing of our GP members and their ability to continue to support the community response to COVID-19 remains top of mind. As such, the series of hackathons will be rescheduled to a later date. This might be after June 2020, or early in 2021. Given the uncertainty around the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we will advise of the new hackathon dates in the coming months.

 

What is a hackathon? 

A Hackathon is a place where people come together to creatively solve problems. An RACGP hackathon is where members come together to develop solutions to the problems faced within general practice and the wider healthcare community. 

Expect to:

  • be heard
  • be challenged to think differently
  • be a part of a community of problem solvers
  • break down barriers and find solutions
  • work with innovative developers on technological solutions
