Perth Biodesign

Digital Health

Perth Biodesign for Digital Health Course is developed as a collaboration between Perth Biodesign and Curve Tomorrow as part of WA’s first Digital Health Accelerator program lead by the Telethon Kids Institute. Over 3 months, teams will identify digital and mobile health challenges in clinical settings, learn how to apply the Biodesign method to research and evaluate needs, and then use the Curve Way to ideate solutions and plan to implement.


Applications are now closed for Perth Biodesign for Digital Health 2020
