The BME Department is pleased to announce an opportunity for selected students to be actively engaged in the innovation process through a 7 week summer innovation internship. Beginning with the needs finding process, interns will undergo clinical immersion through observations in various clinical departments at the UCD Medical Center and/or School of Veterinary Medicine. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in the Graduate School of Management Child Institute’s Biomedical + Engineering Entrepreneurship Academy, in which they will gain knowledge needed to develop the commercial potential of an idea. At the completion of the summer internship, students will have a firm grasp of how to effectively engage with clinicians to identify relevant clinical needs and have a clear understanding of how ideas move forward in the context of critical networks of entrepreneurs and investors. This full-time, paid internship is funded by both the National Institutes of Health and Department of Biomedical Engineering.
