“This is the first programme in India that provides an opportunity to medical professionals and engineers to learn and share knowledge under a trans-disciplinary academic umbrella and is designed to cater to the emerging needs of innovation in healthcare technologies,” said Santanu Chaudhury, director, IIT Jodhpur.

“The aim is to provide a common platform for doctors and engineers, fostering knowledge-sharing and innovation, leading to the development of indigenous healthcare devices and systems through incubation and entrepreneurship,” Chaudhury said.

He said such collaborations were necessary to meet the challenges of future transformations of healthcare technologies. This cannot be done by medical practitioners, engineers, or management professionals alone.

The programmes offered by IIT Jodhpur and AIIMS Jodhpur aim to nurture a workforce with multi-dimensional capabilities of creative thinking, deep knowledge, and a strong sense of business, he added.

Chaudhury said the programme will offer flexible electives and innovation and entrepreneurship-oriented research projects.
