Healthcare Innovation Bootcamp!

Hi everyone! I'm Ryan Dikdan and I recently got accepted into an amazing program that I'm very excited about.

As you may know I'm currently an MD/PhD student at NJ Medical School. I chose this path because I want to make an impact in healthcare and use my love and passion for research along with my interest and compassion for others to transform the world of medicine.

The program I got into, the MIT-Harvard Medical School Healthcare Innovation Bootcamp is exactly what I've been looking for, the application process along with answering their interview questions felt so natural, and I'm very much looking forward to learning with them. Here's a link to the program if you're interested in learning more. MIT-HMS Healthcare Innovation Bootcamp I'm very grateful to my close friend who got me interested in the program, and now there's one more step before going.

The price is pretty steep, but I'm confident that this program will help me to achieve my goals so I'm willing to invest!

Also, this isn't going to be your grandma's GoFundMe. I got some perks, like hand written notes, deciding my hair style, and making songs/YouTube videos!

Thanks so much for reading about this adventure in my life right now and I appreciate any little thing you could contribute. <3


$1 Amazing Friend Level: Thanks so much! You'll get a message with details about how the Boot Camp went and all the cool things I saw and learned

$5 Hitchcock Level: You will get access to a private YouTube video I'll be making with footage from the boot camp and my commentary on how it went

$10 Wonderful Person Level: I'll make sure to go out of my way to have a conversation with you about how everything went (and of course we'll catch up if we haven't in a while!)

$25 Dinner Level: Let’s get dinner and chat! We can do it before the boot camp, or after if you want to hear how it went

$35 Swing Level: You'll be invited to a swing dance place that me and some of my friends will be going to and we can dance and have a great time

$50 Medical Student Level: Medical Student Level: Let’s talk medicine. If you’re interested, we can meet up and talk about whatever medical questions you may have (and I’ll read all the papers and books and whatnot for you). We can also talk about the current state of healthcare and how that relates to the boot camp I’m attending

$75 Helper Level: I will help you with something. Help you with what? That's up to you! Need help building Ikea furniture? I'm on it. Need some help fixing your computer or designing your own? I'll do my best. Need a clown for a kid's birthday party? You provide the make up and I'll provide the entertainment!

For all levels of $100 and above I'll get you a little souvenir from my trip to Boston for the boot camp

$100 Musician Level: I'll make a song either about you or about the topic of your choice and post it on my YouTube for all the world to see. We can work together to make it exactly the song you want.

$150 Day Hangout Level: Want to hang out, play board games, watch movies or anything else? I'll set aside an entire day so that we can hang out and do whatever!

$200 Chef Level: I will make you a home cooked meal. I'm no Gordon Ramsey, but I grew up watching Good Eats and Iron Chef so it'll be a lot of fun.

$300 YouTuber Level: You get to choose what my next YouTube video is about. It can be a parody, a skit, a review, an unboxing, a let's play, anything, and you can help me make it if you want! (you could even choose my next podcast idea instead)

1/2 CLAIMED $500 Party Level: I will go to you and host a party all about you! It will be a celebration of how amazing and generous you are and we'll all have a great time. What will the party consist of? Whatever you want! (within reason you party animals haha)

CLAIMED $1000 Hairlord Level: Decide my hairstyle/color for an entire year. There's even a guarantee, if you don't like how one of the styles came out you can have me change it again!

(If you have a preference for a specific perk, let me know)
