At the U-M Department of Surgery, we take the spirit of discovery seriously. We have created courses around surgical innovation and entrepreneurship that have become a national model for its reach and results.
Our courses feature:
- Learning across all levels, from medical students to senior faculty, including a formal curriculum for medical student education in innovation.
- A focus on teamwork within entrepreneurship, including a first-of-its-kind 9-month course for surgical faculty to develop novel medical solutions.
- Partnerships with faculty in business and biomedical engineering, fostering relationships to solve medical problems together and bring new products to market.
- Leadership for innovation and entrepreneurship within the department through a dedicated associate chair position.
