A team of four Biomedical Engineering (BME) students who work with the Clinical Simulation Center (CSC) recently joined other groups from Michigan Medicine at the Rapid + TCT conference to demonstrate some of their 3D printed solutions to improve simulation-based medical education.
Boasting over 350 exhibitors Rapid + TCT, held at the Cobo Center in Detroit, is an additive manufacturing event produced by SME to provide opportunities for attendees from business and academia to demonstrate their products, network and explore the newest 3D technologies.
Pictured to the right we see the BME students showing off their work at the conference in the Cobo Center.
The BME students work with Deborah Rooney, PhD, CSC Director of Education and Research in Simulation, to develop new simulation models. They were invited to participate by Mark Maynard of UM Tech Transfer, and joined William Weadock, MD, Radiology, David Zopf, MD, Otolaryngology, and Albert Shih, PhD, professor in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering.
