Our DeCal explores the intersection of health, business, technology, and entrepreneurship as a preview of the healthcare of our future. Students walk away from this course with a robust understanding of the current healthcare landscape. Beyond that, they gain an introduction to various technologies that are disrupting the current industry and how businesses are making strides in healthcare innovation. We hope this course encourages students to work in the healthcare industry, and contribute to solving the current crises of the US healthcare system.
This course will primarily be a speaker series, with high profile speakers discussing topics such as 3D printing, medical devices, blockchain, telemedicine, etc. Following these talks, opportunities for questions and networking will be available for interested students, many students have found internships through the speakers. Attendance and short weekly reflections will be required, along with a semester long group project. The project will give students the skills needed to come up with a business proposal that will be judged by leading professionals in healthcare and business.
