"Innovation requires a movement, a culture and a means. RISE will provide a platform for all three; connecting people with different perspectives, skills and ideas towards a new community of educational practice."

Dr. Rajesh Mangrulkar, Executive Director, RISE

"A better healthcare system and the pipe-line for discovery is dependent on our ability to transform how we educate scientists and providers. Great research institutions such as ours must elevate the importance of innovation and avoid becoming confined by legacy and the ways of the past."

Joseph C. Kolars, MD
Senior Associate Dean for Education and Global Initiatives
Josiah Macy, Jr., Professor of Health Professions Education
Professor of Internal Medicine

"I really appreciate your efforts to train education innovators and to promote a culture of innovation at our institution. As I was reflecting on the RISE session I wanted to let you know that I feel fortunate to be at an institution where this is happening. I found our first session engaging, fun and inspiring, and I look forward to future sessions. Thanks for your hard work on this and leading the charge!"

Daniel Cronin, MD

Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine

"RISE gives me space to be intentional and supported as I develop my ideas. This space is different from my day-to-day work, where I'm driven by deliverables and grant deadlines, and often, where true collaboration and risk-taking are luxuries."

"RISE has been an essential component in the development of this innovation, and so for that I'm so grateful for the mentorship and guidance you both have provided"
