Often it is a big problem for employment in the medical industry for fresher due to the lack of knowledge about the modern medical devices in the market and its technology. As we know that health related problems are increasing day by day. This increases the demand of health care services. In order to reduce the healthcare related problems, first we have to identify the diseases in its early stage and give the treatment for curing the disease. For that, innovation is required in the biomedical field, that is, low cost medical equipment which is affordable for the common man should be the main goal and mantra of a biomedical engineer. To bring this dream into reality, both doctors and medical industry should interact with biomedical engineering students to share their experiences, problems and knowledge in order to create a better world by giving better healthcare services for the patients. Hence, this event is an attempt to create new innovative product in future by sharing the past and present experience of medical industry professionals with the young biomedical engineers.
