Instructor: Eric Richardson

This is the second of a two-course series that guides students through the process of human-centered design with the goal of developing a solution to a real-world, unmet need in healthcare. Students will learn to:

  1. Identify unmet, underserved and unarticulated needs using human-centered qualitative contextual primary research methods such as ethnographic research
  2. Apply commercial business criteria in order to select viable business opportunities
  3. Use creative and research-based processes to generate and/or identify potential solutions
  4. Document their design process in accordance with regulations.

The course blends taught content with practical field application and team-based project execution.
