A really remarkable opportunity to diversify perspective during clinical training which I think will change the way I look at things during the rest of my career and train my eye to potential opportunity that I would not have otherwise considered.

I found the idea of starting a company or lab in the future to be overwhelming and likely impossible before this course. But the lectures and hands on sessions were all fantastic in elucidating concepts helpful for both. I would recommend everyone in our program take this course before graduating.

There is so much to learn in this course that cannot be simply read on line. I would highly recommend to my co-residents and residents in other programs.
