Who Should Attend?

The QS Subject Focus Summit on Medicine should be attended by everyone involved in the management of a Medical School, or related academic departments. The Summit is highly relevant for both ‘insiders’, such as deans, department chairs, academics, professional administrators and student representatives, as well as external stakeholders from government and industry, who work with Medical Schools and depend on them to deliver outstanding engineers and relevant, high impact research.

In addition to these two groups, persons from other academic disciplines, the media, academics and consultants in technology management or higher education management, and those involved in university planning and rankings will find the Summit a useful microcosm of the management challenges and opportunities present in academic departments in the healthcare field. As universities are increasingly expected to not just educate, but to also contribute to economic and technological innovation, these issues have broad social and economic relevance.
