d·HEALTH BARCELONA is a unique 9 month postgraduate degree to develop entrepreneurs and future leaders in healthcare innovation


STARTING: January 18, 2018 (9 months program – full time) 

d·HEALTH Barcelona seeks people who wants to solve real, global, major challenges in the healthcare and medical technologies industries. We will help you starting up a new and innovative business model, product or service.

In this program, multidisciplinary teams made up of four people with backgrounds in Life Sciences, Engineering, Business and Design will enjoy a full cycle of innovation – from need identification to invention and early-stage implementation – and will be challenged and mentored by more than 70 international experts. 

The learning process of d·HEALTH comprises 5 phases, based on the Biodesign Fellowship of Stanford University. In parallel, fellows attend a wide program of lectures in science, business and development of soft skills. 

Bootcamp: You will be prepared to work as a team and get the skills you will need for the rest of the course.

Clinical Immersion: You will be immersed in the daily routine of a top hospital in Barcelona (Hospital Clínic, Hospital Sant Joan de Déu or Institut Guttmann) to identify real and unmet clinical needs.

Invent: You will select one of the unmet clinical needs to design and prototype a new and viable product or service.

Implement: You will design your business model (following Lean LaunchPad methodology).

Graduation Day: You will present your innovation to the community and to a panel of investors.

International Mobility: as part of the EIT Health consortium, d·HEALTH BARCELONA will give you the opportunity to visit and share experiences with other Innovation Fellowships programs in Europe.
