Innovation Classes

Enabling you to connect the dots…

Attendees learn and practice some of the skills of Design Thinking and creative problem solving.  Every clinician who participates benefits from the course, whether they want to build the next great medical device, streamline their practice, or simply be a better provider. 

My goal here is to help you innovate -- to give you the tools to design the solutions that will best fit your needs! I run highly interactive workshops for an international audience of practicing clinicians, residents and medical students to teach them the process of innovation -- Design Thinking. 

The course is built in a way that everyone can walk away with some invaluable tools to change their practice, the practice of medicine or even their personal lives. 

Leadership Classes

Align the different members of your care team to a singular purpose...

I teach courses and workshops on practical leadership for the clinician. 

How do you create a mission for each patient that they can rally behind?
Unfortunately when we talk about leadership in medicine the topic is confined to Department Chairs or heads of hospitals or even Chief Residents. The practice of medicine, however, is very much one of leadership, but often times those critical skills are left out of our education entirely.  

If you are interested in learning more about the workshops, and how I can host one for your group or practice, please contact me for more information.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Design Thinking & Innovation in Healthcare Workshop @ Stanford University for med students and clinicians from Asia.

"Since 2014, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Dr. Andrew Chacko to organize a number of creative medicine workshops for medical students from Asia participating in VIA's comparative healthcare programs.

During this time, I have found Dr. Chacko to be a thoughtful, patient and powerful educator who demonstrates an infectious passion for student learning and growth.  His innovative and interactive lessons on how to fuse creativity and medicine have inspired hundreds of our medical students to think outside the box when designing effective interventions for their future patients."
