Imperial College London
This BSc in Medical Sciences in Surgical Design, Technology and Innovation will allow you to explore the development of new surgical devices, how these are safely introduced into clinical practice and the challenges of implementing experimental or disruptive technologies in the clinical setting. You will be presented with an opportunity to meet surgical innovators from several specialities and learn the steps (and miss steps) that have led to the successful progress of ideas from identifying a clinical need, to innovation, commercialisation and adoption.
Recent advances in these fields, alongside a more informed patient population, has led to an exponential increase in the demand for personalised healthcare. You will have the opportunity to explore new technologies and treatments that offer the potential to drive forward personalised surgical treatments to transform patient outcome measures.
