Paradigm shift in the medical profession

Dear partners, clients, friends and innovation enthusiasts,

Medicine has always aimed at providing the best possible care for the least amount of patient discomfort. This guideline drives training away from patient care towards simulation, and it pushes treatments from the operating room into the office.

Dr. Robert A. Pedowitz has written a paper on the various simulation training opportunities already available to arthroscopic surgeons, stating that medical training is on the brink of a paradigm shift; in a video interview he discusses the return on investment of simulation training. Meanwhile, the first ever Global Congress on Hysteroscopy campaigned for less invasive treatments and training to make sure all gynecologists gain the needed skills.

This newsletter also introduces a hard working Millennial support engineer, as well as our new tongue-in-cheek animation series that offers improbable life hacks for medical professionals. Furthermore, even though summer in Florida and even Switzerland can get hot, we will be traveling to conferences near you. Drop by and say hello!

The case for simulation training ROI is already there, states Dr. Robert A. Pedowitz in a video interview.

In May, the first ever global hysteroscopy conference brought together practitioners from all corners of the world to outline the future of the field. A transition towards office procedures is evident, and education needs to follow suit. At the center is the safety and comfort of the patient.
