The TTRN PhD Summer School 2021 has come to an end after two intense days with 33 PhD students from 11 countries. The course was a virtual event like last year because of the covid-19 pandemic.
The subject for this year’s summer school was: Future Digital Technologies in Healthcare: How to design, test and assess the value of digital technologies and services that engage, empower, and motivate patients.
The summer school provided the students with knowledge about new, cross-disciplinary research methods for development and assessment of digital health technologies. They also gained valuable information about different perspectives on digitalisation; the research perspective, patient perspective, health professional perspective, management perspective etc.
The summer school was a mix of lectures, workshops and joint case solving in small groups. And despite of the fact that the students joined the course from almost all corners of the world and only met in virtual reality, they managed to establish network across countries and research fields.
The TTRN Summer School 2022 is expected to take place at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, USA.
Transatlantic Telehealth Research Network (TTRN) has hosted the annual PhD Summer School since 2016.
