About Us

Cultivating innovation to advance healthcare.

MedStart is an organization that aims to bridge the gap between healthcare students and the professional community. Our main event features the educational aspects of a healthcare conference, a startup showcase to create awareness about the innovation and entrepreneurship within the Boston healthcare space, and an exciting networking experience. We support the research, development, and business implementation of disruptive innovations and technologies that improve the quality and productivity of healthcare delivery.

MedStart is run by students at the Tufts University School of Medicine and School of Public Health and Professional Degrees.
