Joint venture to educate physician leaders in innovation

A new partnership between the World Health Innovation Network (WIN) and the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) will build the leadership capacity needed to bring innovative technologies, products and models of care into the country’s health systems.

Based at the University of Windsor’s Odette School of Business, WIN is working with Joule, a CMA subsidiary that provides leadership in training to support physician-led innovation. Together, they are developing an executive education program for Canadian physician leaders to accelerate health system innovation in Canada.
