OpenMRS Announces 2017 Google Summer of Code students

Harsha KumaraCongratulations to the 15 students selected by OpenMRS to participate in Google Summer of Code™ this year! A total of nearly 1,400 students were selected to participate with 201 different open-source projects.

As the organization administrators for the program, we are thrilled to announce our 11th year of participation yet in the annual event graciously sponsored by Google. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed participating in this great program in the last 10 years and are even more excited about the students, projects and mentors that are participating this year. Coding for OpenMRS is a great way for university students to practice coding skills and at the same time help benefit people in developing countries who are on the front lines of the battle against HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria, and other public health challenges.

Please extend your congratulations and a welcome to the following students & new OpenMRS contributors:

Finally, keep an eye on our Summer of Code 2017 wiki page and on OpenMRS Talk for GSoC project updates on for the OpenMRS students!
