This course is an introduction to entrepreneurs in the health care space, featuring doctors who have started and sold their own companies, business professionals with expertise in technology transfer from universities, and researchers who have commercialized their own bench discoveries. This course aims to teach the process of creatively brainstorming ideas, forming viable business models and problem solving for many of the common challenges physician-entrepreneurs face. As a final project, students will create their own business and present to their peers, with the potential for support and mentorship should they wish to pursue their project further.
