The Biodesign Faculty Fellowship (BFF) is a part-time, 6-month programme that will provide motivated Faculty/ Clinical/ Programme Leads with mentoring in Health and Medical Technology Innovation. Participants will be coached through a project using the Biodesign methodology to identify unmet clinical needs, invent practical solutions, and prepare to implement those inventions in real-world settings. Participants will also be given access to market insights and learn about healthcare systems in Asia and US. Through this experience, Biodesign Faculty Fellows gain a deeper understanding of technology translation challenges and opportunities, and also develop a robust network of Health Technology relationships within and outside Singapore.



Interested individuals are advised to submit their applications via our website. Singapore Biodesign will work with applicant's organization to establish a shortlist of candidates for interview. Considerations for selection include:

  • Fit for program
  • Relevance of program to candidate’s aspirations
  • Departmental support and intent to adopt Biodesign


    The Faculty Fellowship is open to driven, passionate faculty individuals, senior clinician innovators, and research directors who are committed to teach and incorporate Biodesign as a multi-disciplinary approach towards innovation in healthcare.
