About Design and Innovation in Medicine

Design and Innovation in Medicine is a one semester crash course in medical device design which follows the Stanford Biodesign model and incorporates IDEO’s Human Centered Design methods. As a team, you will:

  • Identify problems in the clinic
  • Define its needs
  • Generate concepts
  • Sketch, engineer, and prototype
  • Pitch your ideas!

Lectures will supplement your experiences with guest speakers about intellectual property, market research, regulation and reimbursement, clinical development, and fundraising. You will be able to network and interact with clinical experts, biotech entrepreneurs, and members of the UVa License and Venture group.

This class you teach all about entrepreneurship and innovation. Past projects have gone to become capstone projects, independent research, grants recipients, and start-up companies!

Take the dive into medical device design!
