Innovation Lab

The School of Medicine Dean’s Office is soliciting proposals for challenges that would benefit from a structured and facilitated design process to uncover solutions. IDEO, a global design firm that takes a human-centered, design-based approach to helping organizations innovate and grow, will be partnering with us to facilitate work sessions and lead us to solutions.

In addition, we are soliciting applications for faculty and staff that would like to become trained in IDEO’s design thinking process and help facilitate the Innovation Lab projects.

The overall goal of this effort, which stems from the 2013 SOM Leadership Retreat, is to develop a process and cadre of facilitators that can be applied to future challenges. We want to test the feasibility and usefulness of offering an “Innovation Lab” resource at UCSF.

We are happy to assist you in developing your proposal or to answer any questions that you have.  Please contact Stephanie Belger via email.
