MedBridge Establishes MSK Innovation Internship

SEATTLE – May 7, 2024 – Nearly 50 percent of Americans will be impacted by musculoskeletal (MSK) pain in 2024, and the total economic impact of this is estimated at nearly $1 trillion. However, innovations and new ways of thinking have been limited in the MSK space for years. 

In their latest move to reduce this gap, MedBridge is excited to announce a 12-week internship program focused on product innovations. Beginning May 13, the industry-leading digital care solution for healthcare professionals and organizations across the care continuum will welcome one student intern from the Engineering & Technology Innovation Management (ETIM) Master’s program, part of the Engineering & Public Policy department at Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering.

The product internship program is geared to provide graduate students with exposure to the strategic and managerial aspects of healthcare-related technological innovation. This program enriches the learner’s understanding of various product-focused areas with a large emphasis on product strategy and innovation.

“Hospitals want to evolve and enhance their ability to treat MSK outside the exam room, and MedBridge is at the epicenter of this transition,” said Sarah Jacob, chief product officer at MedBridge. “We are confident the forthcoming intern will bring invaluable perspectives and thought-provoking views to aid in this industry shift.” 

“Innovation is defined as the combination of technology, commercialization and customer experience, and our students can apply their knowledge in these areas to support MedBridge’s work addressing MSK,” said Philip Yu, PhD, executive director of the ETIM program. 

MedBridge technology is purpose-built to keep hybrid physical therapy at the forefront of care and help organizations deliver superior patient outcomes across the MSK care spectrum.
