** Hi Design & Innovation!
Penn Medicine Innovation Challenge - Leadership Opportunity About the Challenge: Wharton's Design & Innovation Club and Health Care Club are partnering to sponsor a mini design challenge for Penn Medicine's Center for Healthcare Innovation. We'll run a series of workshops with outside facilitators on the principals of design thinking and innovation as it relates to the challenge posed by a Penn Medicine Principal Investigator Clinician. Student teams will be organized into cross-functional groups (business/eng/design) over the length of the challenge, which culminates with a presentation of ideas and a winner selection and prize money.
About the Center for Healthcare Innovation: We're partnering closely with the Penn Medicine Center for Healthcare Innovation, which is charged with improving healthcare outcomes at Penn through human centered design practices, designing experiences that put patients first. Heading up the Center is Roy Rosin, Penn Medicine's Chief Innovation Officer. A leader in the innovation space, he served as the first Vice President of Innovation for Intuit and was one of the early adopters of lean start-up methodology. Students participating in the challenge will work closely with him and the staff at the Center for Healthcare Innovation and get an inside look at how one of the nation's leading hospitals embrace innovation in healthcare.
Leadership Opportunity: We're looking for a Design & Innovation club member to partner with a VP from the Health Care Club to help organize and run the event, including finding facilitators and logistics management. This position is great for anyone who wants to get experience leading the process of transformational change, especially anyone who wants to work in healthcare consulting or operations management. Additionally, working with Penn Medicine's Center for Healthcare Innovation will be a great way to network. The challenge will take place next spring from March 15th- 25th. Expected time commitment likely to be 2 hours per week, with slightly more activity during the 2 week challenge period.
