Title: Design Approaches for Surgical Applications
Author: Chin, Albert K.
Abstract: The lecture will focus on understanding the natural system of human beings at the intersection of design and technology. Innovation in surgical therapy must consider the elements of procedural function, user learning curve, regulatory requirements and patient cost. Dr. Chin will discuss the application of specific examples of technique and device solutions to a variety of clinical situations to illustrate approaches to surgical design.
Description: Presented on November 19, 2008 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm in the College of Architecture Auditorium. Albert K. Chin, M.D. has a 30 year history of medical device development. His education combines the fields of engineering and medicine, with an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University, a medical degree from University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, and general surgical residency training at University of Texas Southwestern at Dallas, Parkland Memorial Hospital.
