The objective of this course is to enable students to create opportunities based on their academic and professional skills and knowledge. Employing methods from entrepreneurship and innovation, students learn how to initiate value creating projects and products. The overall understanding of entrepreneurship in this course is much broader than merely establishment of new companies. Based on well-founded theories we see entrepreneurship as a method (Venkataraman & Sarasvathy 2011). Thus the theoretical underpinning of the method can be investigated and the method can be learned through the course components, which are: a) theoretical introduction, b) training, c) application and d) reflection. The course inspires students to an entrepreneurial and innovative approach in many settings such as their primary study programme, research, clinical practice, the industry and of course also start-ups.After the course, the students must be able to:
  • Explain and compare the presented entrepreneurship and innovation theories
  • Explain the core components in the entrepreneurial process and use this knowledge to reflect upon the process that he/she has gone through during the course
  • Describe and reflect upon relevant personal and professional competences and preferences in an entrepreneurial team including network
  • Identify, describe and scope relevant problems (or disclose disharmonies) in everyday practices in a medical setting
  • Apply methods to find out if the problem or disharmony is widely accepted as a problem
  • Identify and qualify an opportunity through an innovation process
  • Prepare a preliminary business model and be able to discuss the pros and cons of different types of business models
  • Present an opportunity to stakeholders
