Find out about the future, play with the technology and network around the room.

Technology, especially in medicine, is moving forward at lightning speed. In fact things are moving so fast now that unless you’re aware of what’s around the corner, you’ll likely be left behind as we go past it. UCL Medical Society’s Enterprise & Innovation section is joining forces with the Sports & Exercise section to bring you an evening of talks and discussions about the future of healthcare. Where will innovation have the biggest impact? Do entrepreneurs provide the solution to waiting lists and budget restraints? Will the role of a healthcare professional change over the next decade?

Please come and join us at the Institute of Sport & Exercise Health, have some wine & nibbles and listen to three speakers who are at the sharp end of medical developments. After the talks there will be an open forum with all our guests where the audience can ask questions and join in the discussion.

This mini-conference has been developed with junior doctors, medical students and aspiring entrepreneurs in mind.


Dr Jack Kreindler.
