Design for Healthcare

University of Dundee


City Campus


To develop innovative responses to the challenges that arise in healthcare, social care and wellbeing domains across the world, new ways of thinking with different mind and skillset about the issues are needed.

We do this by bringing together knowledge of healthcare systems combined with design thinking, creativity and developing empathetic people who can navigate healthcare domains and generate innovative responses to key challenges.

This course brings together people from a range of backgrounds (healthcare professionals, designers, business people, charity professionals etc.) who are passionate about improving health and wellbeing and who can bring their experiences and skills, and work with other people, to generate creative response to problems in this field.
