TMC Biodesign: From Problem to Product in One-Year
TMC Biodesign is a paid, one-year Fellowship program that brings together highly accomplished innovators from engineering, coding, medicine, business, and design to create novel digital health and device solutions for healthcare’s greatest unmet needs. Our Fellows are provided unprecedented clinical access to the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. With the invaluable clinical experts and resources at their disposal, Fellows will be able to take an unmet need and create a potentially venture-backed solution during their one-year fellowship.
Digital Health and Device Focus
By applying established biodesign principles to the development of cutting-edge solutions, TMC Biodesign will enable and train two teams of four innovators to create new technologies, effective business models, and novel applications that will reinvent the future of healthcare.
- Medical Device Innovation Fellowship Team: 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 Team: TMC Biodesign’s Digital Health Team will be 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.
TMC Biodesign is looking for people with innate entrepreneurial, engineering, and coding skillsets to build solutions to some of healthcare’s greatest problems. Lively, out-of-the box thinkers who embrace change and share our passion for innovation and entrepreneurship are strong candidates for this Fellowship. Candidates with a background in medicine, biosciences, engineering, computer science, design, or business are highly encouraged to apply. Our deadline is August 2nd. First round interviews are granted on a rolling basis, so please apply soon if you would like an expedited decision.
Fellows will be required to relocate to Houston for the duration of the one-year fellowship and will receive a stipend of $90,000 and health benefits.
