About the Conference


Healthcare as we know it will change in the next couple of years. There will be an evident shift in healthcare delivery and quality. Will this quality be good? Will the delivery be efficient? Will technology take over a major role in the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of patients? But most importantly, ARE WE PREPARED FOR THIS CHANGE?

The best solution for the future of healthcare technology lies with the next generation of biomedical engineers. The aim is to come together to identify the healthcare challenges we face today, in order to have a healthier tomorrow.

Theme: “Global Young Professionals Addressing Today’s MedTec Challenges for a Healthier Tomorrow”
