imagine you re a psm student interested in life science business
Imagine you’re a PSM student interested in life science business
  • You’ve always loved biotechnology and computers ---
  • So --- you come to KGI for the business and life science PSM program
  • Graduate level biotech, diagnostics, clinical device courses and business, marketing and finance classes
  • Great classes with lots of active learning and engaged activities – great courses – but something's missing.

How does all this “hook together”?

you ve finished you 1 st year now internship beginning to see the light
You’ve finished you 1st year – now internship (beginning to see the light)
  • 1-5 conference calls every week to hear a corporate sponsor discuss upcoming TMP Projects
  • receive a spreadsheet with descriptions of available TMPs
  • “force rank” 23 company projects for TMP (a requirement for graduation)
  • You get excited -- you see a really interesting company project Proteus TMP --
      • identify opportunities for Proteus’s adhesive, wearable sensor patch in the application of competitive athletic monitoring.
      • the sensors collect physiological data such as heart rate, skin temperature, and physical activity
      • Digital health care, smart phone connectivity, wearable patches, data transfer via Bluetooth
      • Perfect !!!!!

Bringing it all together – marketing, biology, technology and business – and corporate norms
  • The TMP Experience – “creating leadership”:
    • Weekly conference calls with the corporate sponsor
    • Project planning and execution
    • 360 survey each semester – what the student and the team do well, -- and opportunities to improve.
    • Dedicated team rooms for each project team
    • Formal confidentiality agreements – between sponsor and KGI and KGI and the student
    • Large public presentations of non-confidential information and small private, confidential presentations to the Sponsor
    • Confidential faculty panel review -- an intense “defense” of the project plan and outcome with Faculty experts
    • Reports (1st semester, final report), corporate slide decks
