Introducing Health Challenges into Teaching

Concrete health challenges from practice is integrated into the teaching in relevant health and innovation programmes at Copenhagen Business School, the Technical University of Denmark, the University of Denmark and Metropolitan University College in order to strengthen the innovative mindset of students.

Copenhagen Health Innovation is developing teaching and educational elements, introducing concrete challenges from the healthcare system into relevant study programmes. This is done through courses that give educators tools and inspiration to combine health challenges with innovation and entrepreneurship in their teaching. The goal is to facilitate a form of teaching that is in touch with reality and prompts students to take an interdisciplinary, innovative approach. The challenges are developed in close collaboration with the Capital Region of Denmark and the City of Copenhagen and are incorporated into study programmes by dedicated employees at the partner institutions.

Programmes in which such challenges may be incorporated include, among others, traditional study programmes like Medicine and Nursing or interdisciplinary programmes like Medicine and Technology and Innovation in Healthcare.
