Maymester: International Perspectives on Design in Healthcare

Open to All Majors. No prerequisites.

BME 320, CHE 379, ME 379M (Unique Numbers: TBA)

We are happy to announce that the Maymester study abroad program in Portugal, run by the International Engineering Education in the Cockrell School of Engineering, will now satisfy the upper division elective credit for the Business of Healthcare Certificate Program! It also gives us our first summer offering for the program.

The goal of this course is to enable students to consider sociotechnical factors in designing clinically translatable solutions. Students learn human-centered design methods to understand the people for whom they are designing and to identify actionable problem statements. The Maymester 2019 course focuses on the design of health information systems for supporting medical decision making, exploring the impact of culture on healthcare delivery and design of healthcare technologies through comparisons of Portugal and the United States.

Maymesters run from the end of May through June.  The deadline to apply for the 2019 Maymester is November 1st. There is a rolling admissions process for this. The deadline will be extended if spots are open.
