As part of a new pilot initiative, Medical Biophysics is pleased to announce the launch of a collaboration with the MedTech Talent Accelerator program.

The MedTech Talent Accelerator is a collaboration between the University of Toronto, Toronto Metropolitan University, McGill, the University of Calgary, Dalhousie, Biomedical Zone and Medtech Canada. The program focuses on creating an innovative solution to the shortage of experienced employees in medical technologies. This NSERC-CREATE-funded program aims to provide graduate talent with industry-focused skills and training through Exposure, Engagement, and Experience.

The intention of this program is to develop industry-ready new talents for the Canadian Medical Technology Sector, as it is intended to attract, train and transition talent through 3 distinct pillars; Explore, Engage, and Experience MedTech. Explore MedTech includes R&D innovation seminars, Hack-a-thons, and exclusive training courses designed for professional development. Engage MedTech focuses on personal networking and mentorship activities with industry experts. Most importantly, Experience MedTech includes a 4-month or 8-month internship at a Canadian medical technology company to aid in the transition from academia to Industry. 

Graduates of this program develop a strong understanding of the Canadian Medical Technology Sector, its product development processes and challenges, and obtain hands-on Experience to be ready to transition to the Industry immediately.
