Barts to Launch the UK’s First Medtech Program for Medical Students

This Friday, Jan 13th, 2017, a new program called BartsX will be rolled out at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry  (follow on twitter #BartsX, @BartsXmed). The new program will teach medical students each week about digital health, VR and telemedicine technologies, and entrepreneurship. See interview with Dr. Shafi Ahmed, a program participant, digital health leader, and “Snapchat Surgeon”. Why it’s relevant: these types of programs will likely become much more prevalent in med schools in the next few years.
