The MTM program appeals to individuals with degrees in engineering, biology, life sciences, or other STEM disciplines, postdoctoral fellows, as well as practicing engineering and professionals from backgrounds in engineering, science, medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and healthcare business.

Candidates should be interested in learning the skills and concepts required to bring new medical technology to market and have an entrepreneurial drive to create products that directly impact human health.

Students are purposefully placed on multi-disciplinary teams to learn from each other and benefit from different academic perspectives. 





The program aims to train our students in the process of commercializing a medical solution that addresses an unmet clinical need.

Undergraduate Degree: Biology at St. Francis College

I chose to enroll in MTM because I wanted to learn about engineering and use those skills, coupled with my background in biology, to make a difference in healthcare by reducing disparities.

Mahammad Camara

Undergraduate Degree: Bioengineering at Fairfield University

I chose to enroll in MTM because incorporating aspects from different schools of thought, I believe, can enhance and diversify one’s perspective on translational medicine and how it relates to various issues. Previously, I’ve had the chance to experience ideation and prototyping on a smaller scale in my past projects. MTM provides an opportunity to expand my foundation by building actual working prototypes ready for clinical trials.

Undergraduate Degree: Applied Chemistry at The New York City College of Technology

Prior to enrolling in MTM, I had plans on attending dental school. I began to feel misaligned in my career goals and started researching other programs and opportunities. When I came across the MTM program, I felt the curriculum perfectly incorporated my many passions and interests including business, research, and healthcare. I also appreciated the focus on innovation and felt this program would help connect me to career opportunities I was previously unaware of. 

Ajeyo (AJ) Yusuf

Undergraduate Degree: Biomedical Engineering at CCNY

My career goals include wanting to build a cancer diagnostics start-up with an emphasis on accurate early-detection of major cancers, patient accessibility, and machine learning driven post detection analysis. After having done my research on the MTM program, it seemed like the perfect place for me to help realize my dreams and goals.

Muhammad Azeem Iftekar

Undergraduate Degree: Psychology/Pre-Med at CCNY

I chose to enroll in the MTM program because of my passion for medicine and technology. I have always been fascinated by how technology can shape the field of medicine, but once I read the book “Zero to One” by entrepreneur Peter Thiel, I was led to believe that being just another physician or surgeon would be closer to globalization than innovation. I realized that I wanted to be part of the solution that develops new, innovative technologies to transform the healthcare industry.

Johanna Frick

Kayla Pena

Undergraduate Degree: Biomedical Engineering at CCNY

During my undergraduate degree, I really enjoyed learning the design process during my senior design project. Something about MTM that I found attractive was the Capstone Biodesign project. I wanted to learn how to take the design process further and how to create medical technology.

Jennifer Enriquez

Undergraduate Degree: Biomedical Engineering at CCNY

I really enjoyed the product development process I did in undergrad, and I have a huge interest in working in start-ups. I like being at the early stages of product development and really wanted to flesh out the skills I would need to make an impact, which MTM helps me do.
