Professional Program Certificate in Product Design & Health (TU Delft)

General

Program Description

Master design knowledge required to improve the patient experience in healthcare systems

Healthcare systems strive to offer better treatment and improve their service level for a growing number of patients. Designers can contribute to this goal by offering their unique human-centered thinking and creative solutions. In this program, you will learn key design methods and learn to apply them to healthcare through mastering a unique method of patient journey mapping.

There are several design methods that focus on the patient journey (built upon concepts derived from “customer journey”). By looking into the patient journey in great detail, designers can generate useful solutions for very specific problems. At the same time, other professionals in healthcare can learn how design can help with facilitating better care.
