DOCSF365 Design Thinking Masterclass

DOCSF 365 Masterclass: Design Thinking
Presented by: IDEO


Join us for this 3-hour masterclass which will teach you the process of design thinking, followed by a breakout session led by the experts at IDEO. During the breakout session, each small group will use the design thinking process to brainstorm solutions to the orthopaedic challenge below.  There will also be a discussion of how the value of design thinking might apply in your practice!

Design Thinking Orthopaedics Challenge: Orthopedic businesses have been required by COVID to do a lot more outpatient care and services. As our world slowly returns to “normal” some things are not going back to the way they were. 

Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation. This masterclass will teach you how to use design thinking in your own practice to solve challenges in an innovative, forward-thinking mindset. The approach taught by IDEO focuses on finding solutions that are desirable, feasible, and viable.

Whether you have attended an IDEO Design Thinking session at DOCSF before, or if this is your first time, we welcome you to join us!

The digital workshop will be conducted virtually with a team from the design firm IDEO led by Dennis Boyle, one of the leaders of the Design for Health studio and a founding team member of the company.

Discounts are available for teams of 3 of more. Email Kristina@DOCSF.health for more information!
