Dr. M. Sesmu Arbous

Target group

Our main target group are highly talented (post) Msc students (Technical medicine, Medicine, Biomedical Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Sciences), PhD students, young medical specialists with technological interest, (junior) postdocs. The participants are pioneers and are capable of out of the box thinking and have the ambition to contribute to the integration of medicine and technology, thus advancing personalized care and patient safety.

Course aim

Strengthen the bridge between the medical specialists and the engineers.

The reason why we want to focus on this group is that on one hand technological developments already have changed healthcare immensely, and will keep transforming healthcare and drive innovation to improve personalized care, patient safety and quality of intra- and extramural healthcare. But on the other hand the integration of innovative technologies and technological research in health care, and insight in the immediate applicability in patient care, is still too limited and is not yet as widely supported as we need it to be to deliver personalized and value-based health care. It is desirable that they are brought together in a short, circumscribed, intensive and inspiring program, where they will collaborate and will become aware of the bridge function that they are going to fulfill while delivering personalized high-quality care. Furthermore, and importantly, it is still a fact that these professionals do not find each other easily by themselves but will need each other in the nearby future as collaborating colleagues to jointly shape the development and application of innovative technologies in health care.
