Key benefits

  • The course is a unique combination of core entrepreneurship and innovation (i.e. ‘business’) content with dedicated health-care and MedTech content.
  • Students will have hospital access through King’s Hospitals and partnerships with the NHS, so students are able to immerse in real-world healthcare settings shadowing clinicians and other healthcare practitioners. This will help them collaborate and develop innovations and start-up projects based on a deep understanding of real-world medical and patient requirements.
  • The course is strongly connected into King’s industry networks and provides a practical route for students and participants to ideate, test, innovate and develop their ideas and launch innovation projects or start-ups in the UK and around the world.
  • Students will be offered an option to work on live-projects with the medical-technology industry in the UK, Europe and around the globe.
  • The course offers a unique opportunity to learn from medical practitioners, industry professionals, innovators, entrepreneurs, and study across business and engineering schools at King’s College London.

The programme builds on King’s strengths in healthcare, health research, healthcare technologies, design, engineering, business and entrepreneurship to teach both crucial business knowledge and the art and science of developing novel medical technologies that address an unmet clinical need. With unparalleled access to our NHS hospital, our students will develop a deep appreciation of healthcare delivery and quality improvement processes to apply their knowledge for developing novel medical technologies and a fulfilling career as a MedTech entrepreneur, innovator or a leader in the medical technology industry.
