Medical Valuation Laboratory

A leader in educating professionals to evaluate and estimate the investment potential of real-world health care innovations, accelerating their careers and preparing them for global leadership roles.


The Medical Valuation Laboratory conducts rapid market assessments for new medical innovations. The students in the course produce over 30 analyses per year, helping assess lifesaving ideas and streamlining the time-to-market for critical new products. Since its inception in 2008, the Valuation Lab has had a wide audience, ranging from students in ten different colleges at the University of Minnesota who want to gain hands-on, real-world experience, to clients and inventors who want a top-to-bottom analysis of their medical technology and its prospects in the market, to recruiters looking for future employees.
