Students get up-close look at robots at
Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center
Dozens of middle and high school students recently got an up close
look at two of the surgical robots used at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center.
“Science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, careers are intricately connected with the medical field,” said Paul O’Sullivan, Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Memorial City. “While a student may not be interested in becoming a physician or other health care provider, there are so many other opportunities to help advance the medical field. We hope giving students hands-on access to some of the latest technology implemented at the hospital will spark a life-long interest in a STEM career.”
