on clinical immersion

Clinical immersion: a period where you will observe and interact with health care professionals and patients during everyday clinical practice. Each team is placed at a specific hospital department, where the clinical immersion takes place, and works alongside the department throughout the program to identified needs and co-create innovative solutions.

INVENT

The identified needs are validated and screened with the support of clinic staff and Experts. Selected high-impact needs are developed further into business concepts.

IMPLEMENT

Guided by design experts and based on the principles of user-centred design, the fellows will brainstorm a range of innovative solutions.
