Program Details

Innovation In Medicine

Description

We offer our innovative medical program on both the east coast and the west coast of the United States. Our Silicon Valley program’s main objective is to provide students a broad exposure to various aspects of medicine and healthcare at the best institutions in the world. Our goal is to ensure that every student comes back inspired to learn, explore and achieve more. While attending the program students will engage directly with leaders in the health field, including Professors, Doctors and researchers at Stanford and UCSF, develop their own project in a medical innovation lab, visit and learn from engineers and others in the converging fields of bio-tech and medicine. As the Bay Area is home to literally hundreds of cutting-edge companies and several of the finest teaching institutions, students will tour hospitals, academic institutions and companies to round out their medical exposure. They will also be provided the opportunity for many peer to peer exchanges as well as explore some of the natural wonder and iconic places of the greater Bay Area including San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, the Pacific Ocean, Redwood Forests etc. Similar in scope and purpose to SE’s Silicon Valley: Innovation in Medicine Program, this new program based in Boston Massachusetts will bring students to the most prestigious and innovative educational institutions in the region such as Harvard, Boston University, MIT as well as an introduction to the New England area biotech and medical innovation companies. Opportunities to visit iconic historical and tourist destinations will also be available for visiting students.
