Registration for the Spring 2019 Biodesign course is now closed. We'll begin accepting applications for 2020 in November 2019.
The projects-based course equips students with tools to create solutions to real-world healthcare needs. Students can either work on an unmet clinical need identified by a partner hospital or propose their own need. Participants will be placed into multidisciplinary teams and work together over the 12 week course to develop a concept and a viable business model.
Biodesign is open to all students who are enrolled in or have completed a graduate level program or above and are passionate about entrepreneurship. Students of all disciplines from across Harvard and the Boston community are welcome to participate.
Our teaching philosophy is interactive and hands-on. We take students through the Biodesign process through team activities, guest speakers, and lectures that provide a foundation. Classes will be led by entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, IP attorneys, and other experts.
Students build skills and acquire experiences that will enable them to identify needs, assess opportunities, and create a lasting competitive advantage for creating innovative products and services.This is a non-credit bearing course held every Tuesday evening, February 19th through May 7th from 4:30 - 6:30pm at Harvard Medical School. Application opens November 12th and closes January 29th. Email email@example.com with questions.
