is a four-month accelerator program for digital health startups. It is no cost to the companies who participate, and no equity is taken. TMCx lowers barriers of access to the world’s largest medical center, allowing startups to leverage our expansive network of advisors from the 21 Texas Medical Center hospitals and our tailored curriculum to clinically validate and find product market fit for their solutions. The next class starts February 2019.
is a one-year paid entrepreneurial innovation fellowship program where two interdisciplinary teams work together to identify unmet needs and create a company around a solution. Our fellows come from all backgrounds (engineering, medicine, business, design, computer science, and research) and are immersed in the clinical experience – uncovering, analyzing and prioritizing needs before exploring and implementing potential solutions. There are two tracks per year: medical device and digital health. Each track is paired with a highly-tailored curriculum and mentorship to both teams as they develop solutions. The next cohort starts July 2019.
