About SSB Fellowship Programme

The SSB Fellowship is an intensive 1-year hands-on team-based training scholarship on the entire value chain of medical technology innovation, with access to training and mentorship in Stanford University and Singapore. During the Fellowship, the Fellows are trained in Stanford University for the first 5 months followed by clinical immersion and project implementation for another 6 months in Singapore. Clinical immersion also includes a 3-week regional immersion in hospitals outside Singapore (typically in Indonesia or Korea). At the end of the Fellowship, Fellows take part in an industry attachment to work on a corporate innovation project
During the innovation journey, this multidisciplinary team of four Fellows comprising of engineers, doctors and business/industry professionals has privileged access to mentors and experts from the wider SSB network, both in Silicon Valley and in Singapore.

Fellowship Extension
SSB Fellowship Extension was launched in 2014 to provide the Fellows an entrepreneurial runway to seek funding and further their project towards a start-up/product beyond the Fellowship period. In this 9-month extension, 2nd year Fellows work on the implementation phase of the Biodesign Process. At the end of the extension, upon securing further funding, the Fellows can continue their project as Entrepreneur-In-Residence (EIR) at SSB.
