Awards

The MCS Program is proud to share that Jason Ku Wang (Class of 2018), one of our own students, has won a Schwarzman Scholarship for a 1 year Masters program at Tshinghua University in Beijing. The scholarship program is designed to ensure that the next generation of business, political and civil society leaders can effectively serve as bridges between China and the rest of the world. Each Schwarzman Scholar earns a one-year master’s degree in global affairs with a focus in one of three disciplines: public policy, economics and business, or international studies. 

Jason co-founded Health++, Stanford’s annual healthcare hackathon, which brings together students across medicine, engineering, business and design to tackle unmet clinical needs for low-resource settings. He said seeing Health++ from idea to fruition reaffirmed his goal to enter medicine as a physician technologist who can foster dialogue and break down barriers between disciplines.

As a Schwarzman Scholar, Wang hopes to explore how societal norms and government policies perpetuate health care inequality, with the ultimate goal of leveraging emerging advancements in artificial intelligence to improve health care access.
