As the longest-tenured medical devices graduate program in the nation, Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) offers a unique opportunity for biomedical engineers in training. Students in the CBID program first complete clinical rotations at Johns Hopkins Hospital, followed by a global health trip where they can identify real-world challenges faced by patients and physicians. Throughout the remainder of the program, students work with esteemed faculty and industry advisors toward the development of a medical device to help create practical solutions for these issues.
Some of the devices developed by CBID graduate students include:
CBID alumni have been awarded more than $5.8 million in prize/grant money for their medtech inventions. Many students have gone on to be involved in biomedical innovation start-ups after graduation, while others have launched careers in consulting, bioengineering, academia, and other related fields.
The CBID medical devices graduate program welcomes online applications until January 5. An undergraduate degree in mechanical, chemical, electrical, or materials engineering is helpful, although not required, to be considered for our biomedical innovation program. We also encourage applicants with backgrounds in bioengineering, pre-med studies, and other related fields.
