The role of venture capital in healthcare innovation and the pathways available to physicians to participate as investors as well as advisors/consultants/entrepreneurs. Innovation is happening everywhere! Physicians are smart and talented. They understand science and innovation. They are busy and do not understand venture capital and how to be a part of this part of the economy. This course is an opportunity to learn from physicians who have been successful in the venture capital world.
