“Majoring in Medicine, Minoring in Design”

Hello there world. Long time no post. I’m going to try to be better about keeping this up.

Thomas Jefferson University launched a first-of-its kind “college within a college” to introduce medical students to design thinking. The Design Track includes modules like:

  • Implementation: How Design Thinking Can Reframe Health Care Challenges
  • Redesigning the Patient Experience: The Use of Role Playing to Test New Ideas
  • Mobile Technology in Health Care
  • Improving Population Health through Design Thinking Methodologies

I’m excited to see what comes out of this course, and thrilled to see a traditional medical school so pointedly incorporating design within a more traditional curriculum.
