SoPE Innovation Scholar Program

In an effort to provide physicians with a hands-on bioentrepreneurship experience, SoPE launched the Innovation Scholar Program.  SoPE works with leading biomed companies interested in offering practical work experience programs for physicians.  The Innovation Scholar Program is typically a six-month program beginning; normally beginning in January or July or another time that is mutually convenient with the company and candidate. The selected Innovation Scholar will become an employee of the biomed company and work under the supervision of the leadership team at the biomed company.  The biomed company will design a work rotation game plan to provide the Innovation Scholar with hands on experience in key aspects of the biomed business; providing the Innovation Scholar with a broad array of knowledge, skills and experiences in product development and commercialization.  SoPE assists in recruiting and screening Innovation Scholar Program candidates, but the biomed company has the employment relationship with the successful candidate.
