OLP Students Work with Paul Dimitri to Create Inspiring Film

UTC Sheffield OLP students have been involved in the creation of a film, showcasing the development of the Centre for Child Health Technology. World-leading work has been produced surrounding Children’s Health Tech, and the film demonstrates the commitment to creating innovative technology for children. The film also shows how beneficial it is for the healthcare professionals to work alongside the young people in need of healthcare. Additionally, it showed how VR can distract young people from pain through creative and unique games.

This comes after Professor Paul Dimitri, Professor of Child Health and Consultant in Paediatric Endocrinology, shared the vision of the Centre for Child Health Technology with UTC students across the specialisms in a visit in October 2018.

Paul’s inspiring talk emphasised the links between Computing and Health Sciences, which are helping to bring about innovative solutions to the treatment of medical conditions, as well as highlighting the vast array of career opportunities in medicine.

The Centre for Child Health Technology focuses on the development of the best and most advanced technology for child health. Its ethos is ‘medical technology designed for children, with children.’

Paul’s vision is to bring together designers, engineers, healthcare professionals, academics, computer scientists, data analysts and young people. He encourages the students to consider similar career routes, as it is so rewarding and beneficial to the community.

Next year, Paul Dimitri is involved in hosting the UK’s first child health technology conference in Sheffield, which brings people from outside the city to visit.
