Abstract: The practical course "Computer Aided Surgery" is organized by several surgery departments in Klinikum rechts der Isar. The aim of the course is to demonstrate the relations between clinical tasks, research projects together with cooperations with industrial partners. The students are asked to be prepared for the topics. The themes are listed. All industrial partners offer informations on their websites. Please prepare for the topics on your own, so we can discuss on a higher level. In the end of the course we will evaluate the student's opinion about organisation, atmosphere and knowledge transfer during this curse. Please give direct feedback if something could be optimized. The aim is to get a "win-win" situation for all participants. Students should get background information about clinical developments, getting in projects and maybe they will meet their future employer. For industrial partners the presentation of actual developments could be the basis of next research cooperation projects together with students and the clinical partners. Part of the course is organized directly in the headquarters of the industrial partners in Munich and the surrounding. Feel free to ask the organizers if you need some help.
