It is not possible to take a second job during the summer clinical experience. The summer experience is a full-time endeavor. You will be in the operating room/clinic 3 days a week. In addition, you will be required to participate in workshops on the two days that you are not in the clinic. We often do tours of local companies during the summer as well. The workshops are designed to discuss what you’ve seen in the clinics and to use some “design and innovation tools” to strategize how to observe, what to ask clinicians, and how to do research into the literature and patents related to possible problems. You will also be working with your design teams during the summer.
It is not advisable to take a second job during the school year while enrolled in classes. The CMTI offers an accelerated MS degree program which is completed within one year. You will be enrolled in 30 credits throughout the school year. In addition, you will be required to be a teaching assistant in one of the BME courses.
