Johns Hopkins University Offers One of the Nation’s Premier Bioengineering MS Programs with Travel
Few bioengineering MS programs are designed with a travel component, but at Johns Hopkins University, we consider our month-long global health trips one of the most important cornerstones of our Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) program. We believe that in order to solve a problem, it’s necessary to see that problem – that is why we send our students to a developing nation that could directly benefit from their work.
Immersing students in the day-to-day operations of a medical clinic in a third-world country, the CBID’s global healthcare trips expose students to challenges that they might not otherwise encounter. In turn, these trips:
The CBID’s global health trips are made possible through the program’s affiliations with international, nonprofit health organizations such as JHPIEGO. Destinations are continually changing, with teams traveling in the past to locations such as Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, India, China, Nepal and Tanzania. Bringing innovations from bedside to bench and back to bedside again, the CBID program’s shared journey to improve healthcare is one that our students find not only professionally rewarding, but personally enriching as well.
To learn more about our one-year graduate school program and how it may compare to other bioengineering MS programs with travel components, contact us today. We are accepting online applications for our CBID MSE program until Jan. 5. In many cases, students are able to obtain funding for their studies through our robust portfolio of scholarships and fellowships.
