About Singapore Biodesign Fellowship Programme


The Singapore Biodesign (SB) Fellowship is an intensive 10 months hands-on team-based training on the entire value chain of medical technology innovation, with access to training and mentorship in Singapore and Stanford University. The Fellowship focuses on developing new medical device technologies for unmet clinical needs in Asia.

The Fellows will be trained in Singapore under the supervision of mentors from Singapore Biodesign together with Stanford University. The Fellows will also be sent to regional countries such as China and Indonesia to investigate unmet clinical needs and develop understanding of the local medtech ecosystem. Towards the end of the Fellowship, the Fellows will spend 6 weeks in Stanford to further refine and develop implementation plans for their top projects under the guidance of experts from Silicon Valley.

During the innovation journey, there will be two multidisciplinary teams formed. These multidisciplinary team of three Fellows (per team) comprising of engineers, doctors and business/ industry professionals will have privileged access to mentors and experts from the wider SB network, both in Silicon Valley and in Asia. In addition, the SB Fellows will receive stipend, overseas living allowance and international travel support
