This course gives you the opportunity to think about solutions to a disease-related problem and to obtain skills such as working in an interdisciplinary team with master students from the Graduate School of Life Sciences, Medicine Master ‘SUMMA’, and master students from the Technical University Eindhoven.
The overarching aim is, that - based on a real-life patient-oriented problem (e.g. inflammatory bowel disease) - future doctors, engineers, and biomedical scientists will collaborate to come up with a potential solution.
You will work in small interdisciplinary groups guided by experts in the fields of biomed/-tech. The course consists of three plenary meeting days (January 16th – March 5th – May 14th 2020). In between these plenary meeting days, you will work at a distance to keep things going.
Within this elective course you will learn among others about interdisciplinary collaborative skills, design thinking, brainstorming, pitching potential solutions, entrepreneurship, and patient perspectives.
