Surgeons and Engineers: A Dialogue on Surgical Simulation

March 10, 2021 | Chicago, IL

2021 Surgeons and Engineers: A Dialogue on Surgical SimulationThe objective of the annual Surgeons and Engineers: A Dialogue on Surgical Simulation meeting is to provide a novel forum for the exchange of challenges and potentially applicable technologies between surgeons, surgical educators, engineers, and scientists. Surgeons and surgical educators will present needs and challenges encountered in their delivery of surgical education. Academic and industry engineers and scientists will have the opportunity to present existing technologies—or those in development—that have the potential to be applied to and successfully address the presented challenges. Through this exchange, we endeavor to promote future collaboration between the surgical and engineering communities.
