The 2018 Design of Medical Devices Conference: Innovation Workshop "Becoming a Medical Technology Innovator" in Minneapolis, MN on April 9.
UNL BMES is currently planning to send a group of interested students.
Here is a link to the website to get all the up-to-date information for the conference: DMD
To sum up the most notable parts of the workshop:
In this fast-paced, one-day workshop, you will learn the essentials of being a medical technology innovator and key opinion leader. Learn from experts in the field on these topics: Medical device new product development process, Pre-clinical trials, understanding med tech markets and needs, intellectual property, how clinicians can innovate, building a med tech startup, creativity and brainstorming, writing a business plan, formulating a research question, and case studies of med tech innovation.
The lectures are complemented by a series of hands-on activities where you will conceive, refine, prototype and develop a new med tech product. All attendees receive a bound copy of "The Medical Device Innovation Handbook," a comprehensive resource edited by the workshop organizers.
The registration will be a flat $40. The cost will be around $130 without additional funding accounting for everything including food. With funding, we're looking at a cost of only $30 minimum. Finalized information at the March 7th meeting!

We are UNL's student chapter of the national BMES, which is a professional society for biomedical engineers. We welcome all students that are interested in biomedical engineering, as it spans many different majors and programs. Our goal is to expose students to different areas of biomedical engineering and give guidance on post-graduation paths. Meetings promote interests through activities such as lectures, presentations, tours, and social activities.
