About the RISE Innovation Lab

The RISE Innovation Lab (RIL) is a place for our community to grow together to cultivate ideas for health science education at Michigan Medicine and beyond.  The RIL’s regular activities connect innovators seeking to collaborate with other aspiring innovators as they engage in creative dialogue, generate new knowledge, and develop skills for innovation experimentation and implementation.  The RIL offers exposure to key concepts in innovation and provides opportunities to workshop ideas, crowdsource feedback, and share progress with a diverse and inclusive community.  Regular RIL attendance will foster the development of our innovation competencies through a self-paced, self-directed, and self-assessed approach.

The RIL sessions run October 2019 – June 2020.  Individuals who attend five or more sessions will receive a certificate recognizing their development toward the innovation competencies.
