On behalf of the Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics conference committee, we are pleased to announce that the 13th symposium will go ahead online between April and July 2021. Exact dates of our various events will be confirmed soon.

A bespoke event website will be launched in the coming months that will showcase research groups, projects, keynote speakers and other online events in the field of Medical Robotics. Further details and a launch date will be announced here. 

About the Symposium- The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (HSMR) is now in its 13th year and has provided an annual forum for surgeons and engineers from across the globe to network and explore the latest developments in medical robotics. Every year researchers, clinicians and engineers are invited to submit papers on a range of topics covering clinical specialities in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Neuro Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic and Paediatric Surgery.

The Symposium continues to grow year on year and it has now become the leading medical robotics event attended by an international audience of over 600 delegates with clinical, scientific and engineering expertise.  The symposium has gained a prominent reputation for presentations, discussion and demonstrations of cutting-edge clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery. 

This year we plan to build beyond the previous achievements and take the symposium to even higher successes with the theme of 'Surgery and Beyond'. We have already received full CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons and to complement this we are planning a programme with increased focus on clinical practitioner centered talks, workshops and presentations. 

The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics is accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England for up to 24 CPD points

The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics is compliant with the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice via the conference vetting system (CVS). You can find our event profile on Ethical MedTech CVS here.
