Biomedical Entrepreneurship Course (BME 6086-020 / BADM 5894-011 / MGMT 5895-012)
As part of its Entrepreneurship in Life Sciences Initiative, CCEI sponsors a multi-disciplinary course in biomedical entrepreneurship, targeting graduate students and honors or advanced undergraduates from across the university with the purpose of engaging them in topics around issues and areas of opportunity in healthcare and life sciences. Students learn about the process of innovating medical technologies and the implications on society and the world.
Students will gain experience that will help them be innovative thinkers and develop an entrepreneurial mindset as they are working towards their future career goals. Students will work on teams to try to solve a problem using new innovation in medical technologies and be coached by industry experts who address fundamental issues. Projects will be presented to external experts and teams will be supported in next step venture development, should they decide to move their ideas forward.
This course is designed for graduate students or very advanced undergraduates. It represents a multi-disciplinary effort between the Schools of Engineering, Business, Medicine, Dental Medicine, Pharmacy, and Liberal Arts and Sciences and will be co-taught by expert faculty from these schools. Interdisciplinary teams will tackle real clinical needs to offer technical solutions and business models that might enable future commercialization.
