    Love this idea. I am a Labor and delivery room nurse with over 30 years experience in a Montreal University teaching Hospital. MUHC. Please keep me connected. How can i join your community?

    I love the concept and am very interested in this space. I just tried to follow your twitter feed, but I’m not sure @medicalfutures is the right feed. The symposium looks great, but we’ll be having a conference of our own at the exact same time called castlefest, that is a bedside ultrasound educational conference that seeks to incorporate technology and new media to teach this crucial skill. Please let me know if @medicalfutures is the correct feed. I plan to follow this website, but would really appreciate push updates as well.

      Thanks for your message, and for noting the error in our twitter feed – the correct feed is actually @MedFutures. Apologies for the error – we only recently launched the website and are still working out some kinks, including activating push notification, which will be functional soon. Too bad the meetings conflict, but thanks for your interest in our work.
      Best wishes, Kirsten

    I too love this concept and am very interested in its development.
    I am a 4th year medical student from the University of Manchester, UK

    Over a few projects I am going to do this year I am going to try and look at the ways in which medical education can be accelerated into the modern times. I do believe that this is a necessary step for future doctors to be able to keep up with patients in the future.

    I was really wondering how I could perhaps join/ contribute/ take part in a few things that you do from all the way across the pond.

    All the best

    I am interested if it will help someone else.

  5. Hi,

    I’m a Rice Alumni, Lovett 2002. I have a team of Rice alumni running a start-up, Medstro (, a collaboration of physicians and medical students. We also started MedTech Boston (, where we focus on medical innovation and technology in Boston and the country. I spoke at South by Southwest about how to create medical innovation in academic medical centers (

    My other team members are John Bachir, CTO, Lovett 2002 (neighbors from Freshman year), and Dave Urban, Baker 2002. We also work with Shannon Moore (significantly younger than us from Rice).

    We’d love to learn more about the Medical Futures Lab and look for any collaborations we can form.
