The Executive Course in Healthcare Design – Designing Medical and Healthcare Products and Services provides practical and theoretical tools and skills to develop and manage highly usable products and services for patients and caregivers. Below are the program objectives.
● Enhance knowledge of ergonomics and human factors principles in healthcare design.
● Update knowledge on trends and challenges in the healthcare sector.
● Learn key regulations and standards related to the design of biomedical devices and software.
● Learn to design digital graphic interfaces for medical applications.
● Acquire skills to improve the usability and user experience of medical products and to develop projects for health products or services.


The training program targets recent graduates and professionals in the field (designers and consultants for companies, startups, and research centers). The program is divided into three parts.

● Theoretical overview of the context and medicine of the “5Ps” (predictive, precise, personalized, preventive, and participatory); regulations and classification of medical devices; ergonomics and human factor principles; benchmarking recent solutions and technologies for monitoring physiological parameters.
● Introduction to basic principles for designing digital graphic interfaces for health, as well as usability and user experience.
● Project development for a wearable product or system, prototyping in the laboratory, and designing an app for data visualization.
