The MWI is a proven way to identify and solve frontline patient problems through research and innovation. It launches new projects that start and end with the patient problem, in the process bringing physicians and scientists together in their best roles.
Impact on Participants
Since the inception of the U.S. Virtual Magic Wand® (VMW) program in 2017, many dermatology scholars and fellows have participated together in the program from many different military, public, and private institutions in many locations throughout the United States.
Past participants of the U.S. VMW program have become leaders in biomedical innovation and have continued to stay engaged in innovation, making an impact.
Our past participants have excelled in innovation by winning Dermatology Hackathons, participating in industry internships programs, starting companies, and winning awards for the impact of their work.
Starting in 2021, the VMW program will be opened to scholars and fellows in Europe, thus greatly increasing the impact and the reach of the MWI worldwide.View past VMW participants
