The MedTech programmes offered by IIT Jodhpur and AIIMS Jodhpur aim to nurture a workforce with multi-dimensional capabilities of creative thinking, deep knowledge, and a strong sense of business
MedTech programmes including Master’s, Master’s-PhD and PhD in medical technologies will be offered by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in a unique collaboration, officials said on Monday. The collaboration will allow students to work under faculties from these premier institutes in the emerging areas of healthcare technologies, they claimed.
“This is the first MedTech programme in India that provides an opportunity to medical professionals and engineers to learn and share knowledge under a trans-disciplinary academic umbrella and is designed to cater to the emerging needs of innovation in healthcare technologies,” Santanu Chaudhury, Director, IIT-Jodhpur said.
“The aim is to provide a common platform for doctors and engineers, fostering knowledge sharing and innovation, leading to the development of indigenous healthcare devices and systems through incubation and entrepreneurship,” he said. Chuadhury said such collaborations were necessary to meet the challenges of future transformations of healthcare technologies.
“This cannot be done by medical practitioners, engineers, or management professionals alone,” he said.
“The MedTech programmes offered by IIT Jodhpur and AIIMS Jodhpur aim to nurture a workforce with multi-dimensional capabilities of creative thinking, deep knowledge, and a strong sense of business,” he added.
Chaudhury said that the MedTech programmes will offer flexible electives and innovation and entrepreneurship-oriented research projects.
The last date to apply for the course is 15 June 2022 and the course work will commence in July 2022.
