Rosenman Institute’s Inaugural Credited Course. Innovating Healthcare: From Concept to Reality

Wednesday, April 3, 4:00 to 5:30 PM PDT (In-person)

We are excited to announce the launch of a groundbreaking course, “Innovating Healthcare: From Concept to Reality,” a collaboration between the Rosenman Institute and UCSF Cardiology. This pioneering educational offering is the first UCSF-credited course tailored specifically for students, postdocs, and fellows who aspire to transform healthcare through technology and innovation.

Course Overview

“Innovating Healthcare Technology: From Concept to Reality” guides participants through developing and implementing novel health technologies. The curriculum addresses critical elements, including unmet need identification, solution development and de-risking, Intellectual Property protection, FDA oversight, and the complexities of clinical trial design, reimbursement strategies, startup fundraising, and operations management.

Engagement and Learning

The course is designed to foster active engagement and optimize learning outcomes through a combination of project work and insightful lectures. Participants will undertake a hands-on project journey, with individual guidance provided during two 30-minute sessions with the instructor. Project topics vary from solutions for pediatric earaches to strategies for obtaining FDA clearance. Participants will devote approximately 9 hours per quarter to their projects and weekly 1.5-hour sessions that blend lectures with discussions.

Course Objectives

  • Identify and articulate unmet clinical needs.
  • Innovatively create viable solutions to these needs.
  • Assess the clinical and market potential of new technologies.
  • Employ design thinking in technology and healthcare innovation.
