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 technological and medicine is no exception to this. To keep up with all these advancements and innovations, Orsi Academy has launched a new project: Junior-Orsi.

The Junior-Orsi board consists of enthusiastic medical students from KU Leuven and UGent. The goal of Junior-Orsi is to introduce (bio-)medical-, veterinary- and engineering-students to the innovative and surprising side of the healthcare sector.

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 robotic surgery courses, readings, company visits, presentations and brainstorm sessions.

Be sure to have a look at the Orsi Vimeo-channel where you can find several lectures given at past Junior-Orsi events. 

For more information about Junior-Orsi, feel free to e-mail your questions to junior.orsi@orsi.be.

Come and join the team.


Orsi Academy has its own e-learning platform, centralizing the best of existing educational content and making it accessible for approved users.

Step-by-step videos with explanatory textual information are provided in the video-library next to didactic material. Proctors can push specific content to course participants prior to the course or allow alumni to consult course material later on in their career. Next to these sections, links to a wide variety of discipline-specific literature can be found on the platform.
