Bioengineering MS Programs with Travel

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:

  • Encourage students to consider social, economic and geographical considerations that do not routinely impact the healthcare model in the United States
  • Give students a real-world connection to the individuals whose lives will be most impacted by their work, providing the empathy and passion they need to fuel their careers
  • Promote “out of the box” thinking by requiring students to step out of their comfort zones, work hand in hand with their colleagues and create meaningful solutions for complex challenges

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 through December 31. In many cases, students are able to obtain funding for their studies through our robust portfolio of scholarships and fellowships.
