Masters in design for health

Earn a Master’s Degree in a Design Program for Health Care Innovators at Johns Hopkins

If you want to work in global health, a master’s degree with an emphasis in bioengineering innovation and design might be right for you. The Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) at Johns Hopkins University offers a fast-paced, one-year MSE program that can prepare you for a variety of exciting careers. Combining a global health trip and a series of clinical rotations with classroom-based instruction and hands-on design challenges, this program will provide extensive real-world insight that will prepare you to make a meaningful impact in the healthcare industry.

The CBID’s MSE degree program is an immersive experience that’s unlike any other. Through this year-long experience, you’ll be tasked with:

  • Observing real-world needs in the healthcare industry, both in the U.S. and abroad
  • Identifying potential solutions and determining how to make them work
  • Developing, testing and refining prototypes in the lab
  • Creating strategies for distribution and commercialization

As you learn how to develop healthcare products and prepare them for broad availability, you’ll work hand-in-hand with Johns Hopkins University’s esteemed bioengineering professors, as well as mentors from some of the nation’s top medical device developers. CBID students are encouraged to develop relationships with — and gain invaluable insight from — our program’s partners at Boston Scientific, Medtronic, USAID and other leading organizations. Through these unique partnerships, our students are able to comprehensively explore the most impactful ways to improve public health in today’s globalized world.
