The Clinical Innovation Fellowship team ‘Internal Medicine’ is undergoing its third week at the Hospital of Norrtälje. At the end of the first week, the team had a grasp of the information needed to go through 6 weeks of observation and pave the ground for the next months of work.

But hold on! You are probably reading this because it was in your news feed, maybe because you are in MedTech community, heard about CIF somewhere or from someone, or maybe because you know Anton, Elhabib, Semra or Matt. To remove all confusion, let us explain once and for all, in the simplest terms (and a lot of acronyms) what is CIF. CIF (Clinical Innovation Fellowships) is a program that is supported by European Institute of Innovation Technology, Health (EIT Health). The program is jointly managed by KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) and KI (Karolinska Institute) combines different disciplines (Business, Design, Engineering and Medicine) to innovate in healthcare. The program consists each year of multidisciplinary teams. Business, Design, Engineering and Medicine work hand in hand, following the bio-design process to innovate in healthcare.
