The health sciences entrepreneurship minor is for undergraduate students from any major, in any college at the university, who have an interest in developing skills in the creation and management of health sciences companies. The minor builds on currently offered courses within and outside of Bouvé College of Health Sciences. This minor allows students to apply the entrepreneurial mindset to develop marketable and applicable skills conversant in the unique regulatory, reimbursement, and promotion of products and services in the health sciences. Providing opportunities to develop these skills will benefit students pursuing positions within healthcare organizations and medical technology businesses, as well as students wishing to be entrepreneurs or innovators in the companies that employ them.
The minor consists of three required courses and one elective course. Up to two courses from other major and minor requirements may apply to this minor.
