Medical Innovation in Start-Up Nation: Lessons for Any Professional Community Hungering for New Ideas

Description:
Large organizational and professional structures often are resistant to change. This can apply to the corporate infrastructures, financial institutions, government, NGO's, and religious communal organizations. Healthcare is an example of a dynamic professional community with incredible challenges and strong resistance to change. Personal and professional experiences both in interventional radiology and in Israel serve as examples for fostering a culture of innovative thinking to kickstart an ecosystem and shift it from the brink to a restorative, thriving, and meaningful calling to serve.
