Training surgical innovators:

Early experience with the Stanford Surgical Innovation Program

Bilal M. Shafi

General Surgery Resident, University of Pennsylvania

Biodesign Surgical Innovation Fellow, Stanford University


“The abdomen, the chest and the brain will forever be shut from the intrusion of the wise and humane surgeon”

Sir John Eric Ericksen

Surgeon-Extraordinaire to Queen Victoria, 1837


The Problem

  • Technology is becoming more complex

  • Physician views are narrowing

    • Specialization

    • “Treadmill” mentality

      There is a “crisis” of physician / innovators

      There is an increasing gap between technology and clinician needs


Stanford Biodesign - Mission

To develop leaders in biomedical technology innovation

Educate. Collaborate. Innovate.


Innovation

Innovation is a process and,

as such, can be learned.

“Innovation is not simply invention;

it is inventiveness put to use.”

Harold Evans
