What is Junior Orsi?

junior orsi

In the 21st century, the age of globalization 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 engineering and medical students from KU Leuven, UGent and UAntwerp. 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 ground-breaking projects. This to trigger students to be motivated to improve medical care now and in the future. We’ve created 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,...


Want to be involved? 

As of this year the structure of Junior Orsi has completely changed. As of this year we are completely inclusive to all. Any student with a keen interest in innovation is welcome to join all our events and actively partake in workshops.

We wish to provide a platform to all those who have a passion for innovation. This implies students from different fields of study. To best deal with the different backgrounds we have developed different tracks. Register as member and join a Track! Once you complete your track you will receive a certificate. You may join more than one track. Furthermore, members will also receive priority registration links 24 hours before the public link. Only events of the innovative Track will be open to non-members.

The yearly subscription fee is 10 Euros.

Virtual hackaton

Virtual Hackathon: Together vs COVID-19. 03/04/2020 - 06/04/2020

The Junior Orsi Virtual Hackathon idea is our unique take on the hackathon concept. Similar to other hackathons it is a competition where teams are given a topic and they have to formulate an innovative idea or product. Now however, this entire event will be virtual. In a timespan of 72 hours multidisciplinary groups of students will have to come together and think about the hurdles we are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, we believe we can create a thinktank which will definitely prove to be resourceful. 

Your final result must be a technological solution that has future prospects in the health sector. The winning team is chosen on basis of the most promising presentation (in English) and will win a reward.

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.
