trains students to apply translational research and engineering approaches to solve fundamental problems in healthcare delivery. The student body is a mix of engineers, biologists, and clinicians, reflecting the many facets of translational medicine.
Linking the Department of Bioengineering at UC Berkeley with the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences at UCSF, the MTM is a truly cross-campus collaboration.
The course content covers fundamentals of bioengineering, physiology and disease processes, along with core medical principles, clinical research methods, and clinical trials design, as well as basics of business and management.
The centerpiece of the MTM program is the capstone design-project experience. Throughout the entire year, students work in interdisciplinary teams embedded in an ongoing effort to develop a novel healthcare solution. Student teams make meaningful contributions to these projects, participating in areas such as development of prototypes, researching intellectual property, creating business cases, and assisting with pre-clinical trials. The capstone course culminates in a symposium, where student teams present the year’s impressive advances across a diverse range of projects.
The combination of coursework and capstone experience helps prepare students for a wide range of careers in industries that deliver healthcare products or patient care. MTM graduates work as #### in small and large medtech companies, as strategic consultants, and as founders of medical device startup companies.
This program should appeal to engineers, scientists and clinicians who seek to bring innovative treatments and devices into clinical use. Individuals with backgrounds in medicine, nursing, dentistry, and pharmacy are encouraged to apply. We anticipate that upon receiving their master’s degree or after further academic or clinical training, graduates will work in industries that deliver healthcare products or patient care. Coursework material includes translational aspects of therapeutic science and principles of engineering design. Content c
