Event description

Description

The Master of Health Technology and Innovation at the University of Sydney in conjunction with The Warren Centre, MTPConnect and SWAAB are sponsoring a free breakfast address and panel on healthcare technologies for the next century. A leader in this field, Professor Dan Galai from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem will be joining us to present his findings and lead a discussion panel on how best to develop creative healthcare interfaces between students, universities, hospitals, government and industry.

Please join us on the main Camperdown campus for breakfast and an engaging discussion. The Faculty of Engineering & IT will also present how the tertiary sector can prepare graduates to thrive in this increasingly complex and risk-averse sector.

As healthcare and information technologies continue to merge, highly trained and skilled individuals are needed to bridge the gap and solve large scale problems. The Master of Health Innovation & Technology prepares students for this changing landscape and offers a fruitful and rewarding career path in the healthcare and technologies arena.
