Stanford-India Biodesign Fellowship 2012 Fellowship Year
Study Subject:medical technologies
Description:This highly competitive program is directed towards Indian citizens who have an interest in the invention and early-stage development of new medical technologies (medical devices). Successful applicants will have advanced degrees and/or significant work experience. University faculty are strongly encouraged to apply.
During the fellowship, approximately half of the fellowship period is at Stanford University and the other half spent in India. Fellows work on a multidisciplinary team joining other innovators with a combination of engineering, medical and business background.

Applicants who are admitted into the fellowship program will sign a bond with the Government of India stating that they will return to India at the completion of the fellowship.
Applicants must have a passion for invention and early-stage development of new medical technologies. University faculty are highly encouraged to apply. Fellows must be able to devote at least one year to the fellowship (the first six months at Stanford University followed by six months in New Delhi). An optional period (4-8 months) in New Delhi is possible, for certain fellows pending the mutual approval of the fellow and the SIB program faculty.
Advanced degrees are highly preferred and may include M.S., M.Sc., M.Tech., M.B.A., M.D., M.B.B.S. or Ph.D. Candidates with Bachelors degrees and significant work experience (greater than 3 years) will also be considered.
