Design for Health (MDes)

The Master of Design (MDes) in Design for Health program teaches students to become experts in the fast-growing area of health design. Nearly every aspect of health care needs design expertise, including systems, service, program and product design. As more inclusive healthcare policies and practices are developed, a wide range of health challenges are explored including the need for inclusive physical spaces, the emergence of pandemics and the rapid growth of digital health and telehealth delivery.
