The Johns Hopkins Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) at Johns Hopkins University is home of the David E. Swirnow Master of Science in Bioengineering and Design Program. A joint effort between the Whiting School of Engineering and the School of Medicine, and housed within the nation’s top Department of Biomedical Engineering, CBID is a highly exclusive, first-of-its-kind graduate program carefully designed to prepare the next generation of leaders in global health innovation and design.

Graduates of this intensive one-year biomedical innovation program join an elite group of researchers and entrepreneurs who are designing and building commercially successful medical devices that address some of the most pressing global health needs. CBID graduates are highly valued and engage in disruptive innovation to improve patient care and health care delivery around the globe.

Our focus is translational research and prototype development in health care. No other program combines clinical immersion, travel to developing countries for global health concentration, state-of-the-art facilities, and world-renowned mentors and lecturers to inspire students to deliver critically needed technology.
