Institute for Patient-Centered Design, Inc.

Design with Patients in Mind

The Patient-Centered Design Student Alliance (PCDSA), is an initiative that will facilitate professional opportunities for students interested in healthcare design and prepare for careers in the same. The student-led alliance will serve as a resource for mentor opportunities and access to health systems for site visits that would support their academics. This will allow for students to understand the need for design intervention in healthcare systems. This alliance aims to get the likes of architecture, interior design, industrial design, furniture design and user experience students to create a holistic approach to the alliance and its projects.
