The MedTech Foundation is a national engagement initiative for university students, early career researchers and clinicians. This initiative aims to support healthcare technology innovation by connecting medical, engineering, scientists, product design, business and industry specialties together. Each year, the collaborative delivers an educational Innovation Programme and organises several research and industry internships, giving its members enhanced training and opportunities to engage with real-world medtech innovation. We have spokes in Leeds, Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Leicester, Warwick and beyond as well as affiliations across the UK. Our main supporters are the NIHR Surgical MIC.
