I had the opportunity to pitch my project to senior biomedical engineering students at the University of Michigan. The students and I are working together, with M-PED support, to develop product specifications and create a functional prototype.
The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.

The cornerstone of the MPED Innovation Fellowship is the curriculum, designed to complement a thematic focus (opportunity space - e.g., cardiovascular medicine, ophthalmology, geriatric medicine), but built on an innovation platform. The curriculum provides the necessary tools to enable Fellows to collaborate in a process of nascent medical innovation and development.
The curriculum is comprised of three phases — Innovator's Foundation, Opportunity Exploration, and Opportunity Execution — each geared toward the advancement of skill and thought to transform knowledge into innovations that improve health.
