Accelerating Innovation in Surgery Education
The state of the art in surgery would not be possible without innovation. Traditionally, however, little attention has been given to the process of innovation. In today’s medical world, clinical practice continues to be highly focused and at the same time, technology continues to become more multidisciplinary and complex. As a consequence, the innovation process is less efficient than it could or should be. This presentation looks at the innovation process and how structured programs can be established to bring together unmet clinical needs, novel technologies, and creative individuals from the various surgical specialties.
