The Rambam Innovation Course trains clinician-scientists in the multifaceted tasks of bringing an idea from concept to actualized product.
Each year, selected Rambam physicians are invited to attend an intensive four day course that guides them through the process of medical innovation.
Lectures are given by the hospital's senior physicians and invited world renowned experts in their field. Physicians have the opportunity to learn about the entire development process including:
How to take an idea and bring it to the feasibility stage.
How to develop and write up a patent.
How to enter into a business agreement to develop the idea.
How to use modern technology to develop prototypes.
Professor Rafi Beyar, the Director of Rambam Health Care Campus is one of the active presenters. He himself is an entrepreneur with mutliple medical devices to his credit. In training these physicians he sets an example for how hospital management should guide and inspire the next generation of health care professionals.
Rambam MedTech provides full organization and running of the course. In addition, we work with each physcian to help develop his or her clinical idea into a relevant prototype.
