Entrepreneurship in Health Sciences
In collaboration with our Riata Faculty Fellow from the Centre for Health Sciences (CHS) we are currently engaged in several major initiatives in the health sciences arena. First, progress is being made in developing an entrepreneurship module to be included in one of the non clinical courses in the DO curriculum. Second, the Masters program in Health Administration has been modified to include a track in Entrepreneurial Leadership and Innovation in Health while a Certificate in Entrepreneurship is also being conceptualized with the aim of targeting Practitioners in the field. We are also in the midst of designing a seminar series for their Biomedical Sciences Program as well as offering a dual MSc (ENT) and MSc (Biomed) degree program for this group. There is also active collaboration between our Technology Transfer unit and researchers at CHS aimed at commercializing potential products emanating from their research.
