Open to all: Clinicians, academics, industry, trainees, researchers and students from all specialties
NIHR invites any in the field to join them for the MedTech Foundation National Expansion Meeting at Horizon Leeds on 24 January 2019.
The MedTech Foundation is an engagement initiative for university students, early career researchers and clinicians. This initiative is supported by the Surgical MIC Management Team, but driven by an interdisciplinary group of students and trainees from healthcare, engineering, physics, chemistry, product design and business.
Each year, the collaborative delivers an educational Innovation Programme and organises several research and industry internships, giving its members enhanced training and opportunities to engage with real-world medtech innovation.
Instilling these skills and interdisciplinary ethos in the next generation of clinicians, scientists, researchers and industry representatives is vital if we are to improve the translation of technologies for patient benefit. NIHR aims to expand the benefits of the MedTech Foundation to other institutes and MICs nationally and already have begun expanding to Cambridge, Birmingham, Warwick and Kings College London.
The full programme will be made available shortly, but highlights include keynote speakers from surgical innovation, engineering and industry as well as several students and trainees from across the country showcasing their collaborative medtech innovation projects. There will be plenty of opportunity to get involved, discussing how to further engage students and trainees nationally.
Key benefits of engaging with the MedTech Foundation include:
- Internship opportunities- many are funded, some international.
- Networking and contacts assistance- help identifying industry and supervisor contacts to take YOUR project to the next level.
- Competitions and Awards- unique access to opportunities to present and publish your work: Excellent CV building activities.
- Join a growing national network of students and trainees working on medtech innovation right now
