September 10, 2012 -- Applications for the fall semester are now being accepted for the new Master of Biomedical Innovation and Development (BioID) program at GA Tech. The program seeks to develop graduates focused on unmet clinical needs, innovations in “translational” development and the commercialization of new technologies for improved patient care and healthcare outcomes.
Ideal candidates for the BioID master’s program include early-career professionals in medical device or biotech related specialties; engineers seeking medical device specialization, high performing graduates from engineering disciplines and related fields of study. Graduates of this intensive one-year professional master’s program will be exceptionally well prepared to pursue and advance their careers in the dynamic field of biomedical engineering devices and technology. Specifically, this program addresses the crucial “bench-to-bedside” progression that connects biomedical research with unmet clinical needs in order to develop innovative solutions for new techniques and products that will improve patient care. BioID graduate students will study with experts in clinical practice, engineering design and development, best practice manufacturing, regulatory pathways, business planning and commercialization.
Guest lecturers from the diverse healthcare industry will contribute perspectives on key current topics affecting medical device development, trends in technology, intellectual property, patient care and healthcare policy. Industry supporters of the program cite its many advantages for students, ranging from device design experience to understanding regulatory considerations to learning to work in multidisciplinary settings. In particular, biomedical business leaders acknowledge that they currently dedicate significant resources to providing on-the-job training for new engineers– an expense they expect the new BioID training will help them avoid.
