TMC Biodesign is a paid, one-year fellowship program that brings together highly accomplished innovators from engineering, software development, research, medicine, business, and design to create novel digital health and device solutions for healthcare’s greatest unmet needs. TMC Biodesign Fellows are supported by the leading clinical expertise and resources of the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. With 21 top provider institutions and the TMC Innovation Institute’s ecosystem of clinicians, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and resident corporate partners Johnson and Johnson and AT&T’s Connected Health Foundry at their disposal, Fellows are able to develop and own cutting-edge startups during their one-year fellowship with guidance and mentorship every step of the way.
Digital Health and Medical Device Fellowship
TMC Biodesign will enable and train innovators to create new technologies, develop effective business models, and find novel applications that will reinvent the future of healthcare. Candidates can choose to apply to two available fellowship teams:
• Medical Device Innovation Fellowship: The TMC Biodesign Medical Devices Team will have the opportunity to shadow doctors in a specific clinical focus area and use established biodesign principles to create novel point-of-care, minimally invasive devices or implants, clinical or surgical tools, and other innovative medical device solutions.
• Digital Health Innovation Fellowship: TMC Biodesign’s Digital Health Team is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on building digital health solutions. Our Fellows will build transformative solutions in mobile, web, cloud, data analytics, remote monitoring, sensoring & wearables, population health management, EMR solutions, and telemedicine.
Learn more about one of last year’s TMC Biodesign teams, IntuiTap Medical, and their impressive traction in this video. Since graduating from the program in September, the team has raised funding, won multiple healthcare startup competitions, and has participated in several startup accelerators including: MedTech Innovator, TMCx, and Insight Product Development’s Accelerator Labs. In addition, as part of winning Johnson and Johnson’s competition at the 2016 AdvaMed Conference, they will soon join Johnson and Johnson’s JLABS incubator.
We will hold an info session at Mount Sinai on December 5th at 12pm. Please join us for food and a conversation about our program.
