This two-week elective is designed to provide the fourth-year medical student with the basic competencies in 3D printing. To define the purpose of the 3D printed object in medicine, students will learn how to segment and 3D print using medical imaging, explore the historical roots of 3D printing, and apply certain forms of idea generation. Registration is through the School of Medicine.

This workshop provides a window into the segmentation and 3D printing process.

In this one hour workshop, students will learn about the long and winding path that is the history of 3D printing, current 3D printing medical practices, and how to think like an artist. By drawing connections between the history of artistic genius, scientific innovation, and current uses of 3D printing in medicine, students work together to reformulate existing practices by pushing them to the absurd.
