Register for SoM Making the Case program, learn to transform an idea into a proposal

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

The School of Medicine is offering Making the Case, a hands-on, interactive program to learn the skills needed to transform an idea into a proposal.

Over the course of three sessions you will develop or refine a business plan for your own idea, get feedback on stakeholders to engage and questions to ask, and practice pitching your proposal to a panel of mock judges. No actual funds will be awarded as part of this program.

In order to participate you must come to the first session with a program or project idea that you would like to develop. This should be an idea that you want to move forward and that requires a budgetary component. Past examples include things like starting a new program, implementing a clinical redesign effort, launching a new division or center, or proposing a new system-wide workflow redesign. Sessions will include guidance on how to use and manipulate data using excel.

Presented by:

  • Sharon Hull, MD, MPH, Director of the SOM Executive Coaching Program,
  • Rossi Evans, MS, Assistant Dean of Budget and Finance
  • Susan Kline, MS, Chief Administrator, Department of Pediatrics


  • Thursday, February 14, 8:30-10:30, Trent Semans Center, Conference Room 3
