Recording: Applying Design Thinking to Medical Education, Mar 12, 2019

Design thinking harnesses creativity with a human-centered approach to solving problems that result from broken systems. It's most useful for when a paradigm shift is required; a fundamental re-thinking of the status quo. Today, future doctors are caught between the antiquated approach typified by most medical schools, and the burgeoning emergence of new stakeholders in healthcare: primarily driven by tech and creatives as well as patients who deserve better. In order to remain relevant, medical schools and hospitals must iterate, primarily in four (4) key ways: flatten the hierarchy, foster creative problem-solving (with both low and high tech tools), optimize multi-disciplinary and integrative healthcare teams, and re-orient the patient-doctor relationship to emphasize wellness for both. The time is now.
