The B.E.S.T. program was created by IRCAD, to bring medical students and engineers together. This week-long course educates them on Minimally Invasive technologies and surgical procedures, regardless of their background.
One of our engineers got the chance to participate to this course. This will open up new project ideas for medical simulation and collaborations through a better understanding of the surgeon’s needs during minimally invasive procedures.
Stéphane Cotin also gave a talk during the symposium, on the advantages of numerical simulation for innovations in medical and surgical technologies.
