A need exists to train undergraduate engineering students to indentify and solve healthcare problems of today and the future. A team of faculty has been contributing to that need by educating students in a summer Clinical Immersion and Team Based Design program at a mid-Atlantic University. The summer program involves the Biodesign Process, physiology basics, clinical immersion, intellectual property basics, regulatory basics, business perspectives, and development of best practices. The program participants' (or Scholars') deliverables included need statements, specifications, and guidelines to pursue as capstone design projects. A brief overview of the program content and structure is presented in this paper. Assessment of Scholar outcomes are also presented and discussed as well as future plans for the program.
