FutureMed Executive Program

Introducing FutureMed Executive Program for a Deep Immersion into the Future of Medicine

Understand & Leverage Disruptive Exponential Technologies for Healthcare and Medicine so you can make Better Decisions

How will rapidly developing technologies such as low cost genomic sequencing, artificial intelligence, telemedicine, robotics, 24/7 body wearable monitors, smart pills, stem cells, synthetic biology, gene therapy, social networks, gamification of behavior, and crowd sourced health data affect the future of healthcare and medicine?

Singularity University’s new FutureMed, is an Executive Program, to be held May 10th-15th on the NASA Ames Research Park in Silicon Valley, which will provide a multidisciplinary, immersive and hands-on experience designed for those interested in exploring the future of health, biomedicine and convergent exponential technologies.

Whether you’re a management consultant, entrepreneur, doctor, investor, designer, developer, inventor, executive or student, FutureMed, which is a non-profit, will educate and prepare you to understand and recognize the opportunities and disruptive influences of exponentially growing technologies so you can make better decisions, investments and diagnoses.

These game changing technologies and innovations have great implications in medicine, healthcare and the biomedical industry in the decade ahead. Core tracks include those which will explore the exponential trends in Information/Data-driven and internet enabled health care, Genomics and Personalized Medicine, Regenerative Medicine, Robotics & Future Interventional approaches, NeuroMedicine, Device & Drug development, and Entrepreneurship. Talks, Workshops and site visits will be led by a mix of world class faculty from across the biomedical and healthcare spectrum. A fun video primer is here on YouTube as well as a 2 minute introduction to FutureMed and a recent 'Future of Medicine' TEDx Talk by Executive Director, Daniel Kraft, MD.

Singularity University was Co-Founded by Ray Kurzweil (futurist, inventor, and author of The Singularity Is Near) and Peter Diamandis (Chairman & Founder of the X-PRIZE). SU’s mission is to assemble, educate and inspire leaders who strive to understand and facilitate the development of exponentially advancing technologies, in order to address humanity’s grand challenges.
