Sponsor Prospectus 

The HFES International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care is a leading educational activity and forum for human factors experts, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, biomedical engineers, health-care providers, FDA representatives, and patient safety researchers to discuss real-world examples and experiences and find solutions for challenges in health care.

 

With more than 600 attendees annually, this five-day Virtual Symposium will feature cutting-edge lecture and panel presentations, poster presentations, and workshops on emerging issues in health care human factors. Academics and practitioners should join us to develop their knowledge of human factors/ergonomics as it applies to health-care devices, environments, and end-users in a format that allows for both education and social interaction.
