The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.
— William A. Ward
The cornerstone of the MIC is the curriculum, designed to complement a thematic focus (opportunity space - e.g., cardiovascular medicine, patient safety), but built on an innovation platform. The curriculum will provide the necessary tools to enable Fellows to collaborate in a process of nascent medical innovation and development.
The curriculum is comprised of three phases — Innovator's Foundation, Opportunity Exploration, and Opportunity Execution — each geared toward the advancement of skill and thought to transform knowledge into innovations that improve health.
