Biodesign Faculty Fellowship Programme

A part-time executive programme aimed at providing faculty dedicated mentoring and in-market exposure to
health technology innovation.


The Biodesign Faculty Fellowship is a part-time, 6-month programme that will provide motivated University Faculty members with mentoring in Health 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 China and Indonesia. Through this experience, Faculty members gain a deeper understanding of technology translation challenges and opportunities, and also develop a robust network of Health Technology relationships within and outside Singapore.
