MDD is a learning opportunity for students interested in the process for designing and manufacturing medical devices.
The Medical Device Development Bootcamp at Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in Claremont, CA, is a learning opportunity for students interested in the process for designing and manufacturing medical devices. This year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the program will be offered as two-week, synchronous online programs. It is a great entry into KGI’s Master of Science in Medical Device Engineering (MSMDE) program.
The program is delivered in three concurrent parts that are integrated to enhance each other.
Technical skills workshops provide instruction on practical skills through short, interactive sessions. Each workshop introduces concepts and is accompanied with team activities to directly apply and practice the skill. Participating students will be mailed a kit to perform several activities in their home.
Participants work in teams of 4-5 throughout the program with faculty advisors on applied medical device and diagnostic projects. Projects this year will be focused on technology for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19.
Industry experts are invited to zoom lunch-and-learn conversations to discuss their experiences in the medical device industry and provide advice in response to participants’ questions.
By the end of the program, participants will be able to:
