The educational outcome of the Innovation in Technology and Medicine Program experience is for internal medical residents to develop an understanding of the value of interdisciplinary collaboration in the translation of medical technology for clinical application. Participants will gain appreciation and understanding of varying perspectives brought from other disciplines, including engineering, marketing, and industrial design. The primary objective is for the residents to obtain a basic understanding of these processes, which will occur through:
- Invited speakers with experience in medical product development will discuss experiences in interdisciplinary team-based problem solving and such that participants understand various aspects of product development, including the overall process, market opportunity, IP, and regulatory considerations.
- Students can partner with a mentor to work on emerging ideas, where the resident and mentor team can develop ideas.
