E-health and biomedical on display at Nepean
At 10am on 6th April a group of 25 biomedical engineering students and three scientists from Eindhoven University of Technology, Holland, will visit The University of Sydney Nepean. They are visiting Nepean Hospital to look at the research being conducted in the field of e-health and biomedical engineering.
Professor Mohamed Khadra, Professor of Surgery, will welcome the group who are on a study tour of Australia. Both he and Dr Bernard Champion, Endocrinologist and Senior Lecturer, will speak about the importance of Nepean Hospital which sits at the gateway of western NSW serving a community that stretches almost to Orange, Dubbo and beyond. They will speak about the importance of e-health and bioengineering as a vital element in health care and the value of developing global ties to advance medical research.
Professor Khadra and Dr Champion will also welcome the students on behalf of Professor Michael Peek, Associate Dean of Sydney Medical School Nepean.
The students will meet with various academics, scientific researchers, local and international medical students. Together they will explore ways of strengthening the ties between The University of Sydney Nepean and Eindhoven University of Technology in recognition of Nepean as a Centre of Excellence in biomedical engineering and e-health.
