A New Tournament with a New Focus

Your-Big-IdeaBuilding off of the success of the “Your Big Idea Innovation Tournament,” Penn Medicine will embark on the “Your Big Idea Challenge.” This program will focus on finding opportunities to be more efficient while continuing to excel in patient care, teaching and research. All ideas will be reviewed and validated for their potential of implementation. As in last year’s Tournament,  there will be some prizes for those who submit ideas, such as tickets to the Phillies or theater. Last year we had over 1,200 people who submitted ideas and we are sure that we can match that this year.

Start Date:  Tuesday, May 14

Submission Deadline:  Friday, June 7

IDEA Evaluation: Review team will evaluate submissions and the Penn Medicine community will rate ideas posted on the website: Tuesday,  June 18 to Friday, June 21

Results communicated:  Week of June 24.
