Intuitive Surgical proudly supports educational programs focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Intuitive Surgical has partnered with HCC to provide our high school students with hands-on experience understanding the role of engineering and robotics in healthcare. As Intuitive engineers travel the country demonstrating robotics to surgeons and hospitals, they make time to also meet with HCC high school students and their medical student mentors.
Preparing for the Intuitive Experience:
Prior to meeting with engineers from Intuitive, medical student mentors prepare high school students with case-based curriculum emphasizing surgical anatomy and the role of robotics in the operating room.
After studying the surgical cases with medical student mentors, high school students are ready to meet with Intuitive engineers who demonstrate robotic devices that save lives in the operating room and inspire high school students to consider careers in bio-engineering.
