The premier medical design event—the IDSA Medical Design Conference—takes
over the state-of-the-art Center
for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) in Tampa, FL from
Oct. 21-22, 2015. A pre-conference, Experiential
Symposium (additional registration required) is scheduled on Oct. 20 with a hands-on operating room/animal lab experience and a contextual usability study on robotic-assisted surgery; along with
contextual inquiry workshops on emergency room conditions and interventional cardiology.
“Join the robust
debate, experiential workshops and labs with the opportunity to play
surgeon. Industrial design has increasing influence over medical design,
and to open the opinion from design for usability—to design for delight,” says Conference
Chair Mary Beth Privitera, IDSA. "This is an exclusive opportunity to exchange ideas, methods and
practices in medical design."
A keynote is set with Stanford University School of Medicine’s
Lawrence Chu, MD, an associate professor in anesthesiology, perioperative and
pain medicine, who takes a special interest in emerging technologies in

Returning to CAMLS this year is Stephen Wilcox, PhD, FIDSA, principal at Design Science. "The conference is a great opportunity for designers working in the healthcare arena to share experiences and brush up on the latest developments. The CAMLS venue, with its simulated medical facilities, provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate new techniques and technologies. It also draws other professionals such as physicians, engineers and human factors experts, who contribute to the learning environment."
