Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you’ve ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you’ve experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with our software.

Did you KNOW?

A Transformative Education

If you, or someone you know, is interested in a different kind of graduate program, who is motivated to learn by doing and is seeking a transformative education, then we need to talk.

Team & Topic Introduction Post

At the beginning of each month, Stephanie Jeanneret Manning, Yasmin Aboelzahab, and Amelia Di Meo will write about the month’s theme, followed by articles that will explore the theme in depth.

A Transformative Education

At the TRP our goal is not to teach. Our goal is not to lecture or have you memorize some datum likely to change before you finish your degree, or that a search engine can find faster than you can formulate the question.

The TRP is a community and a mindset of people who are resources, facilitators, mentors, peers, guides and catalysts whose aim is to help those, who are looking to learn, to explore, to push the boundaries of their experience to seek knowledge.

The TRP is not intended to be divided as a degree of teacher-task-masters and students–those who know one truth and those hoping to memorize that truth. Instead, the program strives to be a community of people motivated to learn, to seek knowledge, to help others to be more and do more. In this community, the focus is not on the content but on understanding the processes, the mechanisms of creative problem-solving and innovation.

Students learn alongside the faculty–we learn together and from each other. We learn from real-world contexts and from failure–not from arbitrary grades or standardized testing–because our collective goals are not to pass a test or earn a grade but to improve lives, to learn to champion change that will improve the lives of others.

Now, we are starting to seek people join our 2021 cohort. Those motivated to learn, those seeking to move beyond their comfort zones, to challenge ambiguity, who want to focus on the processes of innovating of generating new ideas and championing change for positive impact are the kindred spirits we seek–these are the people we seek to join our ranks.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in a different kind of graduate program, who is motivated to learn by doing and is seeking a transformative education, then we need to talk. Come to an information session, read the website, arrange a consultation with someone from our team.

One day soon, we, trainees, mentors, facilitators, students, residents, PI’s, researchers, clinicians, healthcare professionals, and many others, will form a global network of professional translators, who think globally but work locally to improve the health and well-being of people in our communities. And together we will transform health, care and medicine.

Join us.

Transplantation Rounds @ UHN

Some say that it’s hard to recruit clinicians these days to participate in research studies in addition to their plethora of other duties and responsibilities.  Others say that it’s hard to find ways to network and engage with new communities during these online-only times.  However, a TRP capstone group challenged both these anecdotal assumptions as they presented their capstone project to the Multiorgan Transplant Program (MOTP) Transplant Rounds this morning.

Transplant Rounds are an approved group learning activity as defined by the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.  The Team, composed of Fabricio, Angie, Atina, and Sabrin, used the opportunity to present their method called “Organ Mapping” to track the systemic touch-points.  Their project titled “Understanding the Effects of the Recent COVID-19 Pandemic on Solid Organ Transplantation: An Essential Medical Service,” focuses on understanding the complexity of the organ transplantation (OT) system, exploring the impacts of COVID-19 on healthcare delivery, and formulating insights to improve future pandemic responses.  Speaking to a group of over 60 clinicians from across UHN, they outlined their work to date as a way to recruit participants for their ongoing study.

Find out more about their project on their Capstone page, HERE.

Great work!

We’ve been told there is no way to tell you about the TRP.  You have to experience the TRP.  So we have tried to make it easier for you to find out if the TRP is right for you.  There are three ways to GET STARTED: Ask us a question (below); attend an information session (online or in-person); or book a program consultation.  Click below for the fine print (terms and conditions).
