Medical Technologies Innovation Centre (MTIC)
Based at Mohawk College, the Medical Technologies Innovation Centre (MTIC) is part of IDEAWORKS – Mohawk’s active hub of applied research and innovation.
Located within a $25.85 million, four-story facility, MTIC represents a unique partnership between McMaster University and Mohawk College. It supports research initiatives that strengthen the innovation of existing and emerging medical technologies and advance patient and community care by creating pathways to adoption within our healthcare system through community and industry partnerships.
MTIC can help medical technology companies with product improvement, providing feedback and recommendations to help improve products and processes to support improved clinical outcomes. Partners can reduce technology development costs by leveraging provincial and federal funding.
Leveraging Mohawk’s Simulated Hospital Lab, the team at MTIC can support the deployment of new medical technologies into the healthcare system through testing and validation research that focuses on usability and interoperability.
