2017 Unitek College Conference

At Unitek we are committed to instilling in our students the expertise and boldness necessary to thrive in an ever-changing, competitive world,” says Abdel Yosef, Chief Academic Officer at Unitek College.

Healthcare providers, educators and suppliers are invited to collaborate on a better future for healthcare at the 2nd Annual Unitek Conference to be held on November 13, 2017 in Oakland, CA.

Raising the bar on tomorrow’s healthcare requires the coordinated efforts of numerous contributors across the fields of education, technology, and healthcare. This includes college administrators, instructors, and students; IT and informatics professionals; clinical administrators and staff; and vendors of all types. In the spirit of pioneering this challenge, Unitek College encourages all interested stakeholders to attend this year’s Unitek Annual Conference: Building a Strong Partnership Between Academia and Healthcare.

The forum will begin with an inspirational keynote address from Senator Bill Frist, MD. Following Senator Frist, a diverse panel of experts and stakeholders will discuss the essential competencies of collaborative partnerships. This will include a focus on two goals from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN):

Goal One: Partner in Preparing the Nurses of the Future
Goal Two: Partner in the Implementation of Accountable Care

In addition, these topics and others will be further explored in breakout sessions, lunch and mingling opportunities. Because technology and informatics play an increasingly important role in healthcare and the process of collaboration, IT faculty and vendors will also be on hand to discuss the applications of technology to facilitate greater collaboration and partnership among academia and healthcare.

“At Unitek we are committed to instilling in our students the expertise and boldness necessary to thrive in an ever-changing, competitive world,” says Abdel Yosef, Chief Academic Officer at Unitek College. “As research and technology progress constantly, we must progress constantly, or we run the risk of falling behind. Only with academia and practice working hand-in-hand can we guarantee future success in the healthcare field. This year’s conference is an opportunity to do precisely that.”

Plan on attending this important event to share your thoughts and ideas with other dedicated healthcare and education professionals, and help identify our roles in achieving our common objectives.
