TechMed Summerschool at Leiden

Are you looking for an inspiring Summerschool, combining Technical and Medical Science?

  • Cancelled: July 6-9, 2020
  • LUMC, Leiden The Netherlands

Cancellation 2020, join us next year!

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, TechMed Summerschool has come to the difficult decision to cancel the Summerschool this year. We would like to thank all of our academic staff, (inter)national lecturers, partner universities and participants for their commitment to our Summerschool. We look forward to welcoming all of you next year. Information on a new edition will be published as soon as possible.
TechMed Summerschool 2021 will offer short intensive academic courses that will increase your knowledge, enhance your research skills and expand your international network. Our course leaders will share the latest developments in research and education with you.
Our main target group are highly talented (post) Msc students (Technical medicine, Medicine, Biomedical Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Sciences), PhD students, young medical specialists with technological interest, (junior) postdocs. The participants are pioneers and are capable of out of the box thinking and have the ambition to contribute to the integration of medicine and technology, thus advancing personalized care and patient safety.
The reason why we want to focus on this group is that on one hand technological developments already have changed healthcare immensely, and will keep transforming healthcare and drive innovation to improve personalized care, patient safety and quality of intra- and extramural healthcare. But on the other hand the integration of innovative technologies and technological research in health care, and insight in the immediate applicability in patient care, is still too limited and is not yet as widely supported as we need it to be to deliver personalized and value-based health care. It is desirable that they are brought together in a short, circumscribed, intensive and inspiring program, where they will collaborate and will become aware of the bridge function that they are going to fulfill while delivering personalized high-quality care. Furthermore, and importantly, it is still a fact that these professionals do not find each other easily by themselves but will need each other in the nearby future as collaborating colleagues to jointly shape the development and application of innovative technologies in health care.

  • With State of the Art Lectures, workshops and planairy & small group sessions
  • Meeting others with the same ambitions you have, learn about innovative technologies, discuss the Technical Medical gap, and improve intramural and extramural care for patients by working together in a save and hightech environment
  • In the evening an interactive social programme


Please know that our thoughts are with those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus). The health and safety of our members and participants are our first priority. We are closely monitoring any specific travel advisories through official channels, which include the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).

Before traveling to the Summerschool, we recommend that you stay informed of any information your local health agencies may make available and take reasonable precautions to protect yourself. TechMed Summerschool continues to closely monitor this dynamic situation and will provide updates with any developments. Please check to see updated status information as the event dates and details may be subject to change.

We look forward to welcoming you!
