Applications are now open for two unique Perth Biodesign programs, allowing aspiring biomedical innovators to take a hands-on, design-thinking approach to healthcare innovation.
Perth Biodesign for Medtech
Perth Biodesign for Medtech is a 6 month, part-time course running annually, in which multidisciplinary teams identify unmet clinical needs and work towards inventing a medical technology solution, whilst learning about the medical device development process.
Teams come together once a week, usually on a Wednesday evening, to learn, and put into practice, the course content delivered by course faculty and top local experts. Throughout the course, teams will have regular deliverables that will require further work outside of the weekly meetings, either online or at in-person team meetings. Previous participants estimate the workload of the course at around 8 hours per week.
Biodesign bootcamps are an accelerated two full-days of learning and applying the Biodesign methodology for those wanting to learn how to identify and validate clinical unmet needs, ideate a viable solution and translate the innovation within a complex healthcare environment.
Biodesign bootcamps are an excellent option for entrepreneurs, innovation staff and senior academics, clinicians or executives interested in the healthcare space, who cannot commit the time to completing the full Biodesign Medtech or Digital Health courses.
