Abstract

Telemedicine is most commonly associated with a “long-distance” surgery in macro or micro dimensions. An example is a doctor operating on a patient who is in space or on a submarine, while he himself is in a telemedicine center found thousands of kilometers away [1]. The basis for telemedicine is the technological progress that we are observing in the last decade. Therefore, there is a need for cooperation between doctors and engineers in the fields of research, education and in offering medical services. Interdisciplinary character of telemedicine requires cooperation especially between medical and technical universities. The article presents already completed and just started telemedicine projects in Poland as a result of cooperation between Medical University of Gdansk and Gdansk University of Technology
