The UM Global Health Design Initiative (GHDI) is accepting applications for the 2020 Global Health Design Academic Program, a funded opportunity that allows undergraduate students from all majors to gain extensive design experience, learn about healthcare practices in low-resource clinical settings, and prepare for careers in medical device design, ergonomics, operations research, global health, and sustainable development. The Global Health Design Academic Program consists of a 4-8 week summer immersion experience at a hospital in Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, or Michigan that informs a novel design project to be completed in Fall 2020. All selected students will be awarded a Global Health Design Scholarship and will receive up to $4,500 USD to offset travel costs. University of Michigan – Ann Arbor students from all schools and colleges who will have junior or senior standing in Fall 2020 are eligible to apply. The priority application deadline is December 4, 2019. Applications received after the priority deadline will be considered on a rolling basis. Priority consideration will be given to current juniors and students that have enrolled in MECHENG 499 (Section 001): Front End Design (3 credits) for the W20 term. Please direct advising inquiries and program-specific questions to globalhealthdesign@umich.edu.
