Wanted: Young Talents. DMEA Sparks Brings Gen Z and Health IT Together

DMEA - Connecting Digital Health9 - 11 April 2024, Berlin, Germany.
The digital health industry urgently needs skilled workers, which is why DMEA sparks focuses on careers, jobs and supporting young people.

Against the backdrop of the skills shortage in the healthcare sector, supporting young people is becoming increasingly important and at DMEA 2024 from 9 to 11 April is not just an empty promise. DMEA sparks places the focus on careers, young people and sustainability, and offers students and young professionals a wide-ranging programme - comprising lectures, discussion rounds, Meet2Match events and networking opportunities, where young people can find out about careers in health IT.

Congress programme: Gen Z and the healthcare employment market

DMEA sparks topics are also reflected in the congress programme. On day one, various universities, companies and institutions will take part in ten-minute Career Insights sessions and introduce themselves to young professionals. At the session entitled Career in Healthcare IT, Tanja Galla of the statutory health insurance association Westfalen-Lippe will offer a glimpse of the various career prospects and work areas in health IT. She will look at the demands of industry, hospitals and administrations on career starters and what makes this sector attractive. Date and venue: 9 April at 5 p.m., Box 2.

On Wednesday, the Friedrich-Wingert-Stiftung and Hasso-Plattner-Institut will present their latest projects along with information on scholarships and career prospects in science. On days two and three of DMEA, there will be an additional focus on Gen Z and their changing demands on the employment market. The topic will be the role of the media-driven generational conflict under the heading Boomers vs. Gen Z together with possible solutions. Kim Becker of Dedalus, Jonah Grütters of Hashtag Gesundheit, Dr. Jan Wenzel of medatixx and Glenn Zimmer of bvitg generation_next will address the subject on 10 April at 4.30 p.m. at Box 2. The young generation will be represented by the Federal Representation of Medical Students. In a practice-oriented panel they will introduce themselves and discuss the opportunities that digitalisation offers for their professional future.

Other exciting DMEA sparks topics, such as the hospital of the future or developments in medical informatics, round off the DMEA sparks stage programme. Full details of the DMEA congress programme are available online.
