WE BRING A NEW APPROACH TO TEACHING MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION.
As this is an incredibly multidisciplinary type of degree - We encourage anyone with a STEM degree to submit an application! Many of our graduates have pursued further higher education, some have gone on to secure jobs at organizations such as Medtronic, Regeneron, GE Healthcare and well known hospitals throughout NYC while others have pursued more entrepreneurial endeavors. Should you have questions or would like to learn more about the way we teach translational medicine, feel free to schedule a 1:1 conversation that works for your schedule at the link provided here.

The Master’s in Translational Medicine (MTM) program at The City College of New York (CCNY) is an exciting collaboration between The Grove School of Engineering and The CUNY School of Medicine / Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program. Our mission is to educate the next generation of leaders in medical technology innovation by bringing a new kind of graduate degree program to the rapidly growing New York City medical innovation landscape.
Many graduate-level medical innovation programs focus on only one aspect of the bridge from ‘bench to bedside’. Our program is unique in that we explore and examine all facets of the medical technology innovation process from ideation to prototyping to clinical evaluation. Our approach is one that is engaging for engineers, scientists, researchers and others with a STEM background. By completing a stimulating curriculum and challenging project that foster leadership, entrepreneurship, and innovation, our graduates will be ready to create and develop the medical technologies that will change the future of healthcare.
The comprehensive curriculum is meant to be completed in just one year with the central approach being integration of engineering, scientific, clinical exposure, and entrepreneurship training in a 3-semester interdisciplinary design-project experiential learning experience – the BioDesign Capstone project. By engaging faculty from across the campus, specifically the Grove School of Engineering and the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education/CUNY School of Medicine and collaborating with external partners, our students receive unparalleled training in the process of developing a medical technology and bringing it to market.
MTM graduates will be uniquely positioned to successfully pursue those projects in industry, start-up or medical environments, and thus increase the rate at which scientific discoveries and technology innovations can be commercialized for broader clinical and societal use.
CCNY’s Master's in Translational Medicine is the first of its kind to offer the following key benefits:
1) Comprehensive Curriculum: We provide training in the key areas involved in bringing a medical technology to market: Biomedical, Clinical Sciences, and Engineering; Clinical Evaluation; and Business Principles and Entrepreneurship.
2) Location: We provide unparalleled access to a network of top-tier clinical partner institutions, including Albert Einstein College of Medicine, CUNY School of Medicine/Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program, Hospital for Special Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
3) Hands-on technology development experience: MTM BioDesign projects provide our students with hands-on experience in the development and evaluation of medical technologies. These projects are sponsored by our external clinical and industrial partners and result in prototypes whose continued development may be pursued beyond the duration of the program.
4) Medical technology industry access: Through independent studies and guest lectures, we offer MTM students with pragmatic industry experience and the opportunity to build their professional networks, both of which are critical for job placement upon completion of the program.
5) Accelerated industry preparation: Our practical training in the process to commercialize medical technologies prepares students to make an immediate impact upon employment in the medical technology industry.
