About the Event

We are pleased to announce that the 15th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics will be held from 26th – 29th June 2023 at the Royal Geographical Society.

Our theme this year is Immersive Tech: The Future of Medicine

The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (#HSMR23) is now in its 15th year and has provided an annual forum for surgeons and engineers from across the globe to network and explore the latest developments in medical robotics.

Every year researchers, clinicians and engineers are invited to submit papers on a range of topics covering clinical specialities in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Neuro Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic and Paediatric Surgery.

The Symposium continues to grow year on year and it has now become the leading medical robotics event attended by an international audience of over 500 delegates with clinical, scientific and engineering expertise.  The symposium has gained a prominent reputation for presentations, discussion and demonstrations of cutting-edge clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery.

This year we plan to build beyond the previous achievements and take the symposium to even higher successes with the theme of Immersive Tech: The Future of Medicine. We have already received full CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons and to complement this we are planning a programme with increased focus on clinical practitioner centred talks, workshops and presentations.
