The Minimally Invasive New Technologies (MINT) Program is an innovative collaboration between NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) and the Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC). Through the MINT program, clinicians and engineers develop technologies that advance minimally invasive surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian and beyond.
This unique program, focused on the development and commercialization of medical devices within the non-profit setting, leverages the creativity and experience of practicing clinicians and industry experts at the forefront of their specialties, to biomedical engineering, intellectual property, and business development. In a collaborative, thought-provoking environment, specialists converge to develop medical technologies and procedure-based solutions to meet today's most significant clinical challenges.
The MINT Program’s collaboration with NYPH and WCMC has provided access to the clinical facilities of one of the leading hospitals in the United States and also the ability to utilize the academic environment to create an opportunity for engineering students and medical students to participate in the development of these technologies within the structured development process of the MINT Program.
