This course provides an in-depth understanding of modern clinical innovation, exploring case studies of successful clinical innovations such as medical devices, software platforms, and drug therapies. The main goal of the course is that by the end of the course, medical professionals have the knowledge and tools to apply the latest clinical innovations to their practice and improve patient care in a rapidly evolving healthcare landscape.
