The Medical Innovation Center (MIC) has chosen the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences as the focus of its 2012–13 Medical Innovation Fellowship.
This Fellowship is an intense one-year “co-op” based program whose goal is to develop commercial products and services that improve human health.
Each year a team of fellows—talented post-graduates from medicine, engineering and business —become immersed in a clinical area or department to help develop medical technologies that could significantly impact human health. By working onsite and developing a deep understanding of a clinical area—or domain—the team is able to identify unmet clinical needs and translate them into viable solutions through design, prototyping, device trials and commercialization.
To date, the MIC has trained four fellowship cohorts and launched three companies, from opportunities identified from the clinical domain areas.
