2018 Innovative Ideas Initiative 

In early 2018, the Kern Institute at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) asked faculty, students and staff for ideas on how to innovative medical education through character, competence, and caring.  An overwhelming response of ideas resulted in the funding of ten innovation projects poised to expand the learning opportunities of MCW medical students. Each of the project teams utilized human-centered design thinking and the entrepreneurial mindset to shape and frame their projects for success. To celebrate their innovation journey and launch their projects, an Innovation Celebration was held at MCW on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. 

Douglas E. Melton, PhD, began the program with a presentation titled "Want Better Medicine? Become Infected with the Entrepreneurial Mindset," followed by presentations from all ten Innovation Teams.

We are pleased to share the video recording of the 2018 Innovation Celebration linked here.
