Why I chose Drexel
There were many reasons for choosing Drexel University for my MS degree. The main reason was the integrated program. My major in Biomedical Engineering and Business, will prepare me for all the sectors related to biomedical industry. Another reason was the excellent advising committee at Drexel that really drew me to this University.
Why I was Drawn to the Coulter Fellowship Program
Being done my undergrad in Biomedical Engineering, I was always attracted to medical device technology development. My major here, at Drexel (Biomedical +Business) gives me an opportunity to learn about the various aspects of healthcare industry. After reading about the coulter fellowship, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to put my theoretical knowledge to practical analysis. The attributes of the fellowship that attracted me the most were market research, compliance, nascent stage for medical technology development etc. Coulter program aims in transferring promising technologies developed at Drexel into clinical practice. It is a combination of engineering, research and business that fascinated me the most about Coulter fellowship.
What have I Learned as a Coulter Fellow
With the Coulter fellowship, I have learned to collaborate. It is really all about engaging in your project with researchers, commercialization and Coulter team in various ways for a successful outcome. It has made me even more confident in expressing my views and opinions. Apart from this, I have improved my time management skills and I am learning to prove myself by applying my education, effectively utilize medium (tools) and adapting to new work culture.
What am I Hoping to Gain from the Experience?
From this fellowship, I hope to gain more confidence and abundance knowledge for the project I am working on. I will apply this knowledge that I have gained for my co-op/job/research work. It shall help me gain experience in the fields totally new, build team spirit and gain understanding of the process of healthcare device development process from the scratch.
