Applications are open for the Perth Biodesign for Digital Health course, running from March – June 2022.
The course requires an eight hour/week commitment, inclusive of in-person weekly sessions, from passionate individuals with clinical, engineering/IT/computing/design, business and research backgrounds. Successful participants will be placed into teams and spend time in clinical settings identifying health challenges. After careful needs screening under the guidance of the Perth Biodesign mentors, the teams will ideate and prototype solutions, and plan to implement them.
The course enables multidisciplinary teams to identify digital health technology opportunities which have huge potential to personalise and improve access to care, reduce costs and increase quality of care in the WA health system. The course is based upon Stanford University’s prescriptive biodesign innovation process and is taught by a range of industry experts and our course directors, Richard Macliver, Innovation Manager at Child and Adolescent Health Service, and Dr Simon Graindorge, COO at OncoRes Medical, Entrepreneur in Residence at IP Group Australia.
This is a fantastic opportunity for all aspiring entrepreneurs and those with a passion for digital health.
