Dr. Lance Black

Associate Director

Texas Medical Center

As a family and flight medicine physician in the U.S. Air Force, I frequently encountered poorly designed medical devices and digital technologies. It was frustrating to have the device or platform design impact how I practiced medicine. I chose to leave clinical practice and refocus my efforts on the development of medical technologies. I have since gained educational and work experience securing a foundation in understanding the process of medical device and digital health development from ideation to commercialization. As a clinician, engineer, and designer, I speak a multitude of technical languages that allows me to serve as a liaison and facilitator in this demanding development cycle.
