The creative face of science and medicine

August's theme explores the creativity behind the work being done by researchers, technologists, clinicians and medical students

Nathan Ratner shares his ideas for medical education with fellow medical students. In August, he will compete in the #ElsevierHacks event at the Association of Medical Educators in Europe (AMEE) Conference in Helsinki, Finland.

This month, Elsevier Connect is exploring “the creative face of science and medicine.” There is a creative side to the work being done by researchers, technologists, clinicians and medical students. With the ever-growing possibilities of technology, that creativity is being used to solve some of today’s toughest challenges.

Throughout the month, we will post more stories on this theme, updating this page with the links.
