During the workshop I visited on 15 March (see this post) I met with a Senior Research Engineer and the Imaging Services Manager of McKesson. They kindly offered to give me a tour in their Richmond facility. It was very interesting to see how McKesson Medical Imaging works, from the help desk, software development, hardware to the installation in the hospitals. Thanks so much for the tour! The healthcare industry seems to be a very rewarding work environment.
To get inspiration for my career choice I decided to go to this interesting workshop. It turned out to be very interesting starting with the opening word by Premier Christy Clark. Through the presentations and talking to attendees I learned about the wide variety of technology projects which take place in the Lower Mainland: McKesson, Genome BC, Wavefront, etc. Seems there are many interesting projects for a mathematician who studied statistics, probability and has programming skills!
