The Seven Pillars of Innovation were developed by the founders of the Master of Healthcare Innovation degree program, and they serve as the foundation for the program’s curriculum. The Seven Pillars are identified as the key components of innovation and they are incorporated throughout the MHI coursework. MHI students complete a final capstone at the end of their degree, and the Seven Pillars must be integrated into the culminating innovation project.
