Director’s message

 

Don’t just be part of change, make it happen!

Now more than ever resilience, adaptability and flexibility are essential skills for successful creative problem-solving in life and at work.  These skills, unfortunately, cannot be taught from textbooks and using standardized assessment—these skills must be learned through experience.  Learning by doing.  Learning by trying, by taking calculated risks, stretching beyond your comfort zones, and by getting up when you stumble or fall.

If you want to learn how to find innovation gaps and develop novel approaches and interventions that have impact and make a difference; if you want to be part of health innovation, quality improvement, research mobilization projects that improve health, medicine and care for people and communities, join us!  The TRP is a different kind of educational experience.  We offer a ‘sandbox’ for people who have a passion for learning; who want to be challenged and act; who want to direct their learning; work on meaningful projects; and who want to make a difference.

The TRP is a vehicle for preparing for the future, innovate thinking, and life-long creativity. So, let’s work together to solve meaningful real-world challenges.  Let’s create change to build a better tomorrow.  Let’s champion health innovations to benefit people in communities, companies, and hospitals across the world!
