MIT-CIMIT Medical Engineering Fellowship
Every year the School of Engineering and the Center for Integration of Medicine & Innovative Technology (CIMIT) co-sponsor a multi-year graduate student fellowship at MIT. This award supports the work of four engineering graduate students who wish to focus their Ph.D. studies on healthcare research.
The MIT-CIMIT Medical Engineering Fellowship offers multi-year support for graduate engineering students to work in highly innovative yet classically under-funded areas of healthcare research.
- Medical device development
- New algorithms
- Software for use in clinical practices
- Engineering of medical environments
All of these areas are essential to accelerate the adoption of available technologies into patient care. The MIT-CIMIT fellowship supports work in any of these exciting areas.
Each year, fellows are selected from a pool of candidates and receive an award for stipend and tuition, plus $500 for travel to present at a national society meeting; renewal in the second year is possible upon review.
- Graduate student must be in a Ph.D. program
- Academic excellence
- Willingness to collaborate
- Strong desire to solve complex medical engineering problems
