Clinical Immersion in Medical Device Design Certificate

Offered by








Long Term (Greater than 4 months)

The 12 credit graduate certificate offered by Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin identifies new design opportunities, improves medical devices, and creates new approaches to solving problems often encountered by clinicians and medical professionals in medical device product development. Students will master the etiquette and skills of successful clinical immersion and develop observational research techniques that will uncover new medical device design opportunities.

Students complete courses online and have hands-on practical experiences in clinical simulation centers and in-person immersive clinical environments. These experiences provide engineers a unique opportunity to observe clinical procedures, facilitate clinician-designer interactions, and gain a first-hand account of how the medical devices are meeting the needs of current users. Students will identify future unmet needs and opportunities for improved design practices, leading to safer and more successful medical devices.
