Transforming Global Medical Education with Spatial Computing: A New Era of Technology in Healthcare
Abstract: Medical education is limited around the world where current models of simulation are either inaccessible or require significant expense to utilize. This presentation will highlight the current challenges healthcare providers face and the care they can provide for their patients. Through accessible models of simulation, the implications for patients and the economic implications of standardized care through on demand education and mentorship will be highlighted.

Point-of-care-ultrasound guided therapies and interventions in the global health context

Abstract: Point-of-care-ultrasound guided therapies and interventions, shortly POCUS-IGT, enables treatment at the bedside, whether in an urban hospital, rural clinic, or mobile care unit. The potential use of POCUS-IGT in interventions like injections, biopsies, drainages, ablations and surgeries is virtually unlimited. As such, POCUS-IGT can transcend geographic and socio-economic boundaries and thus bring closer the ideal of democratization of access to healthcare. In the global context, sustainable development of POCUS-IGT programs is dependent on the availability of free open-source software platforms, as the mean of rapid knowledge and technology translation. This talk will discuss the role of the 3D Slicer ( and SlicerIGT ( free open-source software ecosystems in the development of POCUS-IGT solutions and their global deployment though the Train the Trainer Program, an alliance between the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Harvard Medical School and Queen’s University, working with clinical leaders, governments, and international organization toward establishing national POCUS-IGT programs in West Africa, particularly in Mauritania and Senegal.

5:00 PM Closing Remarks
