MEDTECH SYMPOSIUM: THE VISION

SUMMIT is Monash Young MedTech Innovators' (MYMI) annual academic conference that showcases existing and up-and-coming research in medical technology at an undergraduate and graduate level. 

 

This event will challenge all students from all faculties and at various stages in their careers to think critically about medical technology from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students will be given a space to practice presenting research and network with other like-minded professionals. 

 

SUMMIT will also have a program that pairs undergraduate students with academics with a focus on our overarching goal which is to humanise academics in the field of medical technology. This will connect students to potential Final Year Projects, Honours and PhD projects and give a voice to those students who are in the midst of completing their research. 

 

The aim of SUMMIT is to bring together the best minds in medical technology in order to foster an atmosphere of collaboration.  

 

We aim to facilitate the conversation between a broad range of faculties who are unified by a common value system, that is positive impact through medical technology and biomedical innovation.
