During the KTO closing symposium, 109 bachelor Clinical Technology (Klinische Technologie) students presented impressive examples of technological innovations for healthcare which they developed together with various medical centers, such as Erasmus MC.
Medical Delta KTO-WOW! Award
A new method to more efficiently measure and store oxygen levels in the blood of newly operated newborns and an entirely new prototype that serves as a detection device to show the presence of resistant bacteria: two impressive examples of all the projects shown last week during the online symposium. These two projects won the Medical Delta KTO-Wow! Award that was given by an independent jury with members from the medical field.
Registered healthcare professional
The KTO closing symposium is the final part of the Bachelor of Clinical Technology (Klinische Technologie), a collaboration between three world-class centers: Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Leiden University (LUMC) and Erasmus University Rotterdam (Erasmus MC). After this, the students are officially graduated and may directly move on to the two-year master's program in Technical Medicine. After completing the master they are allowed to register in the BIG register. This makes them an officially registered healthcare professional with independent treatment authority.
