Acıbadem – Siemens ITT department has hosted it’s first bio-design event between the dates 14-15 April 2018. The event, which focused on the current problems facing emergency departments within hospitals, lasted for two consecutive days in Acıbadem Mehmet Ali Aydınlar University, Incubation Centre. 7 multidisciplinary teams were created with participants from 13 different universities and 12 different departments. In total, the event hosted 59 university students. The participants were assigned in advance to teams by their major of study. This was done with an aim to ensure having strong and coherent team members working on different allocated problems that required different expertise. Each team was navigated by a mentor who has been working within the Acıbadem – Siemens ITT department and had done extensive research upon the given problems. During the opening ceremony Dr. Selcen Uçar -an assistant chief physician from Sancaktepe State Hospital- gave a 45 minute speech as a guest speaker, giving insight upon the given problems. The schedule allowed the teams to have a structured yet unrestrained time flow with two instructive seminars on Design Thinking and How to Create a Business Model. The two seminars were scheduled to help guide the participants in reaching their end products for their projects. For the final presentation a multidisciplinary group of juries were formed to listen and assess the teams and pick an outstanding project. At the final presentations, the teams were given a 5 minute timeframe to explain their projects to the jury. The jury then had 2 minutes to ask questions to help determine the strength of each project.
