Training the next generation of biomedical entrepreneurs in Perth, Western Australia

What We Do

Perth Biodesign provides educational training in healthcare innovation using the Stanford Biodesign methodology, which focuses on a prescriptive method of identifying unmet clinical needs, inventing solutions that address these needs and creating implementation strategies that fit within the complex healthcare landscape.

 

In Perth Biodesign courses, we bring together multidisciplinary teams of people passionate about making a difference in healthcare and build the connection between industry, academia, health services, and specialised services providers to create a healthcare innovation opportunity. Perth Biodesign programs are experiential in nature, focusing on biomedical entrepreneurship, are designed for the Australian biomedical environment, and thrive on the support of the local ecosystem.

*Perth Biodesign and Biodesign Australia are independent from Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign and Stanford University. Click this link for a full list of programs affiliated with Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign.

The Biodesign Process

Perth Biodesign for Medtech

Our flagship, 7 month part-time course in which teams of engineers, clinicians, researchers and business professionals find unmet clinical needs and create a medical technology solution.

Perth Biodesign for Digital Health

A 4 month part-time course in which teams of clinicians, researchers, software and IT specialists and business professionals find unmet needs and create a digital health solution.

iPREP Biodesign

A 7 week or 3 month industry and PhD engagement program run in partnership with iPREP WA. PhD candidates spend 7 weeks or 3 months working closely with organisations on an industry defined problem.

UWA Biomedical Engineering

Training in the Biodesign methodology is provided in two units that form the capstone of the UWA Master of Professional Engineering, Biomedical Engineering specialisation (Biomedical Engineering Design Project 1 and 2).

Biodesign Bootcamps

Two full-day intensives taking participants through the entire Biodesign process - from need identification to implementation. Perfect for anyone considering the extended courses or time-poor professionals unable to commit to the full course.

“Perth Biodesign for Medtech is fast-paced and highly informative. Over 7 months I went from knowing nearly nothing about the medtech process to being ready to co-found a start-up, which is a testament to this course and the Biodesign process.”
