About the Medical Devices Center Innovation Fellows Program
The Medical Devices Center's Innovation Fellows Program is a full immersion educational and product development program for medical device creation. Each fall, the MDC Innovation Fellows Program brings together a cross-disciplinary team comprised of postgraduate engineers, seasoned medical device professionals, and physicians to develop medical devices across a broad range of clinical areas. The team, led by Ben Arcand, Joe Hale, and Gwen Fischer, will collaborate for one year to identify and solve unmet clinical needs through a disciplined decision-making technique which includes consideration of FDA regulatory pathway, insurance reimbursement, intellectual property, and business strategies. This one-year product development experience includes identification, development, prototyping and testing of medical devices.
