The Co-Development Lab is a Biomedical Zone initiative that gives clinicians and students the opportunity to co-develop solutions to real problems in St. Michael’s Hospital. This program provides Ryerson students in technical disciplines the opportunity to hone their skills through relevant work experience, while clinicians are given the chance to identify and develop high-impact, needs-based projects with biomedical applications. The resulting technology fosters improved efficiency, workflow, better outcomes, and lower cost.
|To propose a potential CDL project, clinicians can submit a Expression of Interest (EOI) Form through our Clinician Application page or e-mail the Zone's Clinical Engagement Liaison, Nabil Uddin, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Project proposals will be evaluated by the Biomedical Zone for clinical feasibility and market need. Clinical lead(s) will then be invited to an in-person interview to assess fit.
Note: This is an opportunity to advance important, practical (non-research) projects.
| Motivated Ryerson Undergraduate students can apply to the Co-Development Lab through our website application, under Student Application. If selected, the student will enter an 8-month program, where they will receive invaluable mentorship, hands-on learning opportunities, and the chance to advance a high-impact, real-world healthcare problem.
Note: Student positions are volunteer. Those selected for Co-Development Lab have the opportunity to engage in experiential learning and clinical immersion, developing career-oriented skills.
