Medical Technology Must Be Reliable and Easy to Use

In emergency medicine, physicians often have to make valid diagnoses under the most difficult environmental conditions in a short time. Reliable and easy-to-use medical technology is essential for this. But even in this interdisciplinary field of medicine, technical innovations will only prevail if they are perfectly tailored to the needs of operators and users. The various terminologies and working methods used by engineers and physicians in particular pose considerable obstacles to efficient cooperation for the benefit of patients.

Guided Tours in the Clinic

The program consists of presentations on the foundations of emergency medicine, its integration into daily clinical processes, and the procurement of medical equipment. Moreover, participants take part in guided tours through the Emergency Room and the Radiology. In order to facilitate intensive contact between participants and doctors, a maximum of 12 participants are admitted. Register today!


Workshop language will be German. A German program is available, too.
