The Research Institute of Health Care Education launched the Big Ideas Lecture Series in 2017. The series features lectures by content experts in technology, innovation and design. In a time of rapid technological and social innovation, it is essential to connect with “big thinkers” and experts – locally and globally – to analyse, critically appraise and design solutions to the pressing issues facing education and healthcare today.

So far, we’ve heard from a number of exceptional speakers from across the UHN community and beyond, including Dr. Peter Pisters, Dr. Brian Hodges, Dr. Ryan Brydges, Jutta Treviranus and more.
