Collaborative Innovation & Entrepreneurial Courses
UTMB and UTHealth CTSAs in partnership with the UT-Austin McCombs School of Business aim to train physicians, faculty, fellows, pre-doctoral students, medical students, postdoctoral scientists and staff in the skills and knowledge needed to enhance entrepreneurial thinking. Two courses are offered as part of the Texas CTSA Collaborative Innovation & Entrepreneurship Program. Graduate students may enroll in these courses for inter-institutional credit.
BUSINESS INNOVATION for SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURSHIP (HPTM 6307)
(Online with UT Austin McCombs School of Business and UTMB)
This course provides a detailed understanding of the steps required to commercialize technologies and develop a successful startup business.
Bioventure Creation (HPTM 6211)
This practical course will provide the skills and resources to facilitate scientist-driven entrepreneurship in conceiving a new life science venture. This course is divided into core lecture and project components where the core lectures consist of a combination of interactive, problem-based “practicals” from the faculty and talks from visiting life science entrepreneurs and the project component is a hands-on experience where students will work in teams on their respective IP and develop business plans. Students and/or postdoctoral fellows must have taken at least 1 course on life science entrepreneurship or device development/intellectual property management prior to enrolling for this course. Students will be asked to fill in a questionnaire and provide a short paragraph justifying their enrollment into the course. Prerequisites: Instructor Approval; Intellectual property knowledge
