Academy of Clinical Innovation

Overview

This Academy will bring together house staff, faculty, clinical and health systems leaders, and other participants from academia and industry to develop a community of learning that will advance health system innovation, integration, and improvement. It strives to promote innovation by developing skills and inter-professional relationships both within and external to traditional medical care systems; to nurture among house staff and faculty an environment that stimulates creativity and shared thinking; and to explore new models of care, tools for improved patient care delivery, and implementation of evidence-based practices in clinical settings. Innovation is a key competency for anyone aspiring to play a leadership role in health care delivery. The skills and content offered through the Innovation Academy will be cross-cutting to BCRP house staff with diverse career aspirations including research, education, and clinical medicine both within and outside of academia.
