For most doctors and other clinician entrepreneurs, taking time from their practice and managing the ups and downs of the start-up rollercoaster is a real challenge – and one that can derail an innovation’s progress or stop a promising venture in its tracks. What many of these busy professionals desperately need is the TTO’s specialized support that equips them with critical support, skills, experience, and leadership capacity.

Because clinicians are working tight schedules, it makes it that much harder to engage and mentor them, unearth their technologies and disclosures, and bring important potential medical advances forward.  But UNeMed — the technology transfer arm of The University of Nebraska Medical Center — specializes in just that. They are in the midst of developing and ramping up an “innovation core” designed specifically for practicing clinicians.

If your university has a medical school, a nursing school, and/or affiliated health care organizations, you will not want to miss UNeMed Business Development Manager Joseph Runge, JD, MS, for this strategy-filled webinar:

Best Practices for Supporting Clinician Entrepreneurs

Here’s a brief look at some of what you’ll hear as Mr. Runge reveals UNeMed’s methods and best practices for supporting its clinicians:

  1. Understanding clinical vs research faculty
    1. The full breadth of clinical faculty (not just MDs)
    2. Appreciating innovation in medical practice
    3. Adjusting your process to suit clinicians’ needs
  2. Practical outreach methods proven to engage clinical faculty
  3. Arming your TTO with the right set of tools for:
    1. Development – requires specialized skills
    2. Validation – from “back of the napkin” to clinical use
  4. Building an Innovation Core: How to create a comprehensive system of support
