This session will aim to educate on how academia and the healthcare industry can combine to translate knowledge from the patient's history into a probable diagnosis using a clinical support tool. This will be an interactive session, looking at medical case studies and solving problems. Attendees will also be able to explore the possible career options in medicine with a Q&A session. Entrance is free, however to be in the chance of winning a stethoscope from a random draw, raffle tickets can be purchased at 1zl each. Light refreshments will be provided.
