Clinicians’ ideas and research results can have an impact on patient care – if they are translated into clinical practice. The Entrepreneurial Faculty Scholars (EFS) program, has teamed up with the HHMI Med to Grad program (U2M2G), and the Center for Medical Innovation to acquaint faculty, students and postgraduate entrepreneurs with the complex and non-linear processes of translating medical devices, diagnostics, therapeutics, digital health applications, and research tools so they can be used to impact patient care.

Clinician innovators, and entrepreneurs, will talk about their experiences and a panel of experts will discuss opportunities, barriers, and steps in creating impactful healthcare innovations.

Don’t forget to RSVP! If you have questions, please contact Kai Kuck (801-581-6393), a professor in the Department of Anesthesiology.
