About the Innovation Programme

In small and interdisciplinary teams you will solve real problems in medicine and healthcare with an innovative solution. Our workshops and expert guidance are there to give you everything you need to develop your solution.

Following the success of the 2018/19 Programme we are happy to run the Programme again this year with new content and features. We are proud to be partnering with some of the most exciting players in the Cambridge Medtech Space:

Who is the Innovation Programme for?

Applications are open to all Cambridge University Students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) and East of England Foundation/Core Trainees.

We are looking to recruit students from all fields (not just medics)– one of the core purposes of the Innovation Programme is to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration. We actively encourage applications from students in all departments, in both science and humanities.

No previous experience in healthcare technology or entrepreneurship is required–the Innovation Programme will teach you how to develop your ideas into viable technological solutions in an engaging, practical context. Core knowledge is covered in our workshops.

Why Apply for the Innovation Programme?

Design your own solution to a real healthcare problem– participants will brainstorm and develop technologies designed to meet the unmet needs of NHS patients, presented by registered practicing surgeons.

Build relationships and network with like-minded people from other subjects– each team will include participants with varying backgrounds (be they in Engineering, Medicine, Computer Science or Architecture). Participants will also get the chance to talk to our expert speakers from academia, industry and clinical practice.

Learn key principles in medical technology development– through our workshops you will learn about concept development, product design, entry to market and translating new technology to improve healthcare for patients.
