In the 21st century, the age of globalisation and innovation, it’s important to widen your view. We live in a time where everything becomes more technologicaland medicine is no exception to this. To keep up with all these advancements and innovations, ORSI Academy has launched a new project: junior ORSI.
Junior ORSI consists of enthusiastic medical students from KU Leuven and UGent. The Goal of Junior Orsi is to introduce the students to the innovative and surprising side of medicine. We try to do this by forming a network in which experienced doctors, engineers and developers meet each other to discuss innovative projects. In this way it’s possible to trigger students to improve medical care in the future. We create a think-tank composed of young, open minds to bring medicine and technology together through robot surgery courses, readings, company visits, presentations and brainstorm sessions.
