Join us for the Medical Visualisation Product Forge in collaboration with Toshiba Medical Visualization Systems Europe and Scottish Health Innovations Ltd from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th of November 2017 at CodeBase.
Medical Visualisation Product Forge will focus on projects or collaborations that utilise innovations in medical visualisation to deliver improved clinical pathways, and precision medicine tailored to the individual patient.
Entrepreneurially minded data scientists and analysts, clinicians, designers and software engineers will collaborate in small teams to solve challenges that benefit patients and the work of healthcare professionals.
Whether you already have an idea that you would like to prototype or you would just like to make new connections, we invite you to come along and meet talented people with shared goals to improve medical visualisation and precision medicine.
Use this opportunity to develop your career, gain new skills, network with professionals, meet potential employers or even kick-start your own company.
