Your Problem. Your Solution. Your Perfect Care.
Collaboration Between Health Sciences, Business, and Engineering & Technology
Fueled by a collaborative effort between the University of Utah Health Sciences Center, The David Eccles School of Business, The College of Engineering and The Technology Venture Development Program, the Center for Medical Innovation combines formal education programs, faculty and student project development, and support and facilitation of device development and commercialization. The Center creates a one-stop-shop environment that assists both the novice and experienced innovator through ideation, concept generation, intellectual property, market analysis, prototyping and testing, business plan development, and commercialization.
Enhancing Faculty Development & Improving Health Care
At the center we hope to enhance faculty professional development, to develop unique multi-disciplinary educational programs in medical device entrepreneurship, and to improve health care delivery through innovation and real-world applications. The center nurtures an environment that supports students and faculty who not only want to invent something new, but who also want to find ways to launch their invention into the marketplace by providing resources, connections, and expertise.
