The Creative Flywheel
Time & Location
Aug 29, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
Akron, OH, USA
Who this is for:
We are seeking passionate healthcare providers who want to make an impact. We strongly encourage applications from all provider types including physicians, advanced practice providers (PA-C, NP, etc), nurses, medical students, residents, and others.
What you will learn:
med+Design teaches an Empathy-first approach to innovation. This half-day in person workshop provides healthcare providers with the skills to translate their direct experience with complex problems in healthcare into a format that launches creative, practical new solutions. We call this dynamic between insight and divergent ideas the Creative Flywheel. You will come away with a new creative mindset, tools, and techniques to start your learning as a Design Thinking practitioner. Attendees should be prepared to attend the full workshop activities and watch the 4 video presentations in advance of the workshop.
Innovation teams of 2-5 people will be able to practice their skills through an active learning process that utilizes a pre-selected problem statement. Individuals without an existing team will be matched with others to form a team for the duration of the workshop. All teams will work on the same problem statement for this half-day workshop as a non-confidential learning experience. Teams that wish to continue their journey after the workshop will be invited to the med+Design coaching program that is protected under nondisclosure agreements.
med+Design by Trig is providing the Creative Flywheel workshop series for aspiring medical innovators in the Akron, Ohio area. The workshop is valued at $500 per participant and we are exploring grant funding for participants. There is a limit of 6 teams and 30 participants. We ask that you express your interest in the workshop and problem topic by applying below.
