From Doctor to Futurist: Step #3 Attending FutureMed

I have been documenting the steps of becoming a medical futurist for some time now (#1 The Decision; #2 The Filter), and it’s a pleasure to announce the next step as my application for attending the famous FutureMed conference/course was accepted. It is an amazing set of lectures organized and managed by the Singularity University. The faculty includes Peter Diamantis, Ray Kurzweil, Daniel Kraft or astronaut Dan Barry, among others.

Between 4 and 9 of February, I will listen to the most important experts of many medical areas such as the future of the medical practice, personalized medicine, robotics or biotech innovation.

FutureMed is an intimate program with one-on-one interaction with many of the 50+ World Class Faculty. Space is limited and FutureMed 2011 and 2012 sold out. The next FutureMed dates are still to be announced.

I cannot wait to attend it and of course, I’ll blog about the course and my next steps as well.

Here are the participants and faculty of 2012:
