Frequently Asked Questions
Who can get involved?
Students, innovators with ideas for new medical products, medical companies, service companies that work in the medical industry, and healthcare professionals can get involved with MEDIC.
How can students get involved?
We use students of all different backgrounds to help move our cause forward. We provide training and resources, and pair students with medical product development teams. If interested, visit our contact page to send an email to Andy.
What kind of training is given to students?
Students are being trained to work within the medical device industry. They will learn how to develop new products that can be patented, regulated by the FDA, and reimbursed by the healthcare system.
I have a project idea, how can I share it?
Visit our contact page to set up a meeting with Andy. We will sign a non-disclosure agreement beforehand to protect your intellectual property.
How do you handle intellectual property?
Our goal is to serve your needs while keeping our hands off of your intellectual property. If you are a medical device company, any work we do will be assigned to you. If you are an individual that does not have a company yet, we will not take any equity in your company or royalties from your product.
Are you an accelerator? An incubator?
MEDIC is neither an incubator or accelerator. We work in the fuzzy area between the development of a new idea and the formation of a company. Once a product is ready to have a company formed around it, it will spin out of MEDIC and we can then connect you with local incubators or accelerators.
Where is MEDIC based?
MEDIC is based out of The Frontier in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
How can I support MEDIC?
