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.

Come and join the team.
