Design for Health Graduate Student Workshop with Lorna Ross

 

Thursday, November 10, 2016 - 8:15pm

On November 3, 2016, Lorna Ross, Director of Design at the Center for Innovation, Mayo Clinic held a workshop in the new Design for Health student studio space for graduate students. Students had the unique opportunity to discuss their studio projects directly with Ms. Ross and gain valuable insight into the design process at one of the world’s leading health design centres. Ms. Ross shared her experiences and advice with students, discussing the practicalities of research in health care settings and tips on how to work effectively with stakeholders throughout the design process.

Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation fuses design principles with the scientific method to uncover human needs in the health care environment, which include empathy, creativity, systems thinking and a human-centered focus. Ross’s role directing the discovery and implementation of transformative, patient-centric care models places her at a critical intersection of design, science, technology and industry, allowing Mayo Clinic to speculate with confidence on the future of health and healthcare.
