The biomedical engineering partnership Program an integrated educational approach to biomedical innovation and entrepreneurship
A case study for a university-lead partnership between academia, industry and clinical medicine through the Biomedical Engineering Partnership Program is discussed. The program provides the infrastructure, the mechanics and the fiscal means for its success, induce enthusiasm and make the program engaging and vibrant. The collaborative Technology Innovation Program (CTIP) is a two phase program aimed at seeding projects that hold the potential for discovery, innovation and inventions that present an opportunity of commercialization. The program positions the Department of Biomedical Engineering as the hub of new technology creation and proves itself key to enabling the department achieve its goal.
