BISC Participates in Engineers in Scrubs MedTech Cafes

Through this program, sessions are organized which are an opportunity for Faculty to present an idea about a problem they have encountered in a LMIC healthcare facility that might be solved by a novel biomedical engineering solution and biomedical engineering students from UBC select which idea they wish to work on.
BISC Faculty and other stakeholders will present a summary about the problem they would like to address to students at two MedTech Café Events, to be held this month on October 1st and 15th.
