BIOL 6518: Design and Health
Design+Health is an interdisciplinary course bringing together AMS, RISD, and Brown undergraduate students to tackle health care challenges through design. Students will work in teams of 3-4 on projects in one of four potential tracks - Emergency Medicine, Surgery, Neonatal Intensive Care, and Primary Care/Health Care Delivery - or have the option to design their own track. With guidance from clinical and design mentors, students will shadow in health care settings, identify a health care problem, design a solution, and pitch a final prototype or model to a panel of design experts. The pitch will be attended by Social Enterprise Greenhouse, a RI-based startup incubator, and give students the opportunity to win mentorship and future partnerships to continue their project after the course has completed.
