Medical technology saves lives and improves quality of life by detecting diseases earlier and providing more effective treatment options for patients and the healthcare system. This subject explores how successful advances in technology not only improves access, but also better meet the needs of patients, healthcare providers, and medical scientists alike.

Innovative technologies can replace, repair, and sustain failing body functions, while telemedicine and connected devices allow remote monitoring of patient’s conditions. This includes gene therapies and editing, implantable devices, non-invasive medical technologies, AI in the field of diagnostics, robotics, and process automation.

Through insights from global medical science innovators and real-world case studies, students explore a wide range of important technological advances emerging from this dynamic and progressive field of science.
