We are seeking passionate healthcare providers who want to make an impact. We strongly encourage applications from all provider types including physicians, advanced practice providers (PA-C, NP, etc), nurses, medical students, residents, and others. There is no cost to participants.

This multi-day virtual workshop provides healthcare providers with the creative mindset, tools, and techniques to manage risk and uncertainty through Design Thinking. Intended to hone and perfect a set of skills that will allow participants to become better at finding novel solutions based on the unmet needs of your patients and community stakeholders. Attendees should be prepared to attend all workshop activities and presentations. This will be a collaborative, team-based endeavor that will culminate in a Pitch Concept presentation at the end of the workshop.

Innovation teams of 2-5 people will be able to advance their projects through an active learning process. Week 1 will include a common project that all teams can participate in and share non-confidential ideas. The following weeks will be focused on team-specific projects that are protected under non-disclosure agreements. All intellectual property generated during the workshop will be assigned to the innovation teams. The program will include six 90-min practical training sessions, coaching, and custom concept illustrations from the design team at Trig. At the end of the workshop, teams will present their confidential build plan to their advisor(s) for the next phase of reducing risk in their project.

Applications close on Wednesday, March 23, 2022.
