IDSA's Medical Design Conference 2018 is taking place on March 29 at Boston Marriott Copley Place. This year, we feature EXPERIENCE—exploring the potency of designing, researching and experiencing healthcare products and environments that weld human performance, business and the dignity of users.
EXPERIENCE will dive into mind shares from thought leaders on the impact of IoT, robotics and nanotechnology on ID—to share-outs by leading experts on best practices in healthcare design today.
EXPERIENCE will provide a wide range of attendees—from corporate and consulting designers to medical design students and educators—with unrivaled content and networking opportunities.
"We'll cover everything from future trends that impact medical design—to best practices and tools and techniques for the research and design of effective medical product and environments."
- Conference Chair Bryce Rutter, PhD, IDSA, founder & CEO of Metaphase Design

We are also thrilled to offer two pre-conference workshops on March 28 at Boston Children's Hospital. Participants will be immersed 'in-situ' for a hands-on and dynamic educational event. IDSA is the only organization offering this type of learning experience. The tremendously valuable and limited capacity workshops require a separate registration. Spots are filling quickly.
