  Beaumont Hospital and Smart Sensors and Integrated Microsystems Program Collaborative Project

Oct 1, 2008 - Beaumont Hospitals and Wayne State Universityís Smart Sensors and Integrated Microsystems (SSIM) program will collaborate on research for retraining surgeons returning from active military duty with a $242,931 grant from the Department of Defenseís Telemedicine and Advanced Technologies Research Center. Researchers led by Beaumontís Charles Shanley, M.D. and WSUís Professor Greg Auner, director of the SSIM program, will measure surgical skills and design retraining protocols for surgeons whose specialized skills may have depreciated during deployment or who need to learn new surgical advances developed during their time in the field. The research may also have implications for training of new surgeons, including those about to be deployed on active duty.
