*LMP2390H & LMP2391H: A Request for Proposal (RFP) is a standard mechanism for soliciting bits for larger scape public healthcare delivery products, services, and projects. Responding to an RFP is part expertise, part practice and part art—it requires the synthesis and analysis of primary and secondary research on the nature of the domain and verification of the problem or unmet need; it requires the ability to navigate and manage risk and ambiguity; and it requires the ability to scope and plan projects that are clear, time-bound and feasible. These skills are also all significant aspects of planning and managing a successful Translational Capstone Project at the TRP.
