Clinical Innovation and Entrepreneurship


Upon completion of the Clinical Innovation and Entrepreneurship concentration, scholars will have the tools and skills to identify transformative solutions to clinical and scientific problems.

As part of the curriculum, each scholar builds a business model detailing a proposed solution, validates relevant business hypotheses to reduce risk factors for both the business and the science behind the transformative solution, and presents the entire business case in an appropriate manner, such as in a business pitch or a business plan.
