The Royal Society of Medicine’s Medical Innovations programme sets out to inform you about the latest innovations within the international medical community.

Two flagship summits are held every year, each bringing together an array of international innovators and speakers from across the world to share their knowledge, expertise and personal story from within the medical and healthcare sector.

So whether you want to find out about the latest medical breakthroughs, discover the latest technologies or the next new transformation in healthcare, the Medical Innovations programme is the place to learn about the next bright idea in healthcare.

And if you missed a talk, all the presentations are recorded and available to watch on RSM Videos, free of charge.

About the programme

Established in 2008, the Medical Innovations programme was designed to help healthcare professionals advance the conversation in medical innovation. A core part of the RSM’s commitment to drive healthcare innovation and quality, the programme has flourished to become an integral part of the RSM’s flagship events.

Since its inception, it has brought together over 200 dynamic innovators from across the world to share their knowledge, expertise and personal story from within the medical and healthcare sector, including a Nobel Prize winner and six speakers all under the age of 22.

Not only does the programme include two annual Summits, but additional briefings are also held throughout the year.
