Harvard Medical School.

This HealthAffairs blog notes:

{A}ccording to our content analysis of top U.S. health administration schools and a recent article in the Lancet, our {medical} educational systems focus their curricula on isolated, theoretical subjects, such as analytics and quantitative¬†problem solving, rather than the team-oriented, practical problem-solving skills required for innovation.”

This has to change, the authors say, and note:

”Across … undergraduate and graduate education, including schools of public health, business, nursing, health administration, and medicine, there are significant opportunities to add innovation components to all of these {healthcare-related} curricula and to include innovation as a crucial component of lifelong learning requirements.”
