Learn how to innovate for impact and maximize the benefits for patients.
Successful and sustainable innovation is difficult to achieve. The iD2D program will enhance the capabilities of today’s biomedical professionals to provide data-driven solutions for tomorrow’s patients. This uniquely-designed program will engage participants in collaborative, cross-disciplinary problem-solving facilitated by top innovation experts in healthcare today. Challenges encountered will span the continuum from discovery research to new models of healthcare systems. Participants will experience a total of 35 hours of learning distributed over the 2020-2021 academic year.
Note: Our vision for this program is a highly interactive in-person learning experience. We are adapting to the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic and will be launching the program online, using a mixture of tools that support online learning and collaboration. It is our hope and expectation that we shall meet the iD2D program cohort in person, as soon as face-to-face learning is once again possible.
