The Innovation Council was been meeting monthly since 2019 to create the resources and infrastructure to ensure that the Stanford Department of Surgery maintains its national position as the leader in surgery innovation. Members of the council engage with Stanford and Silicon Valley leaders to encourage innovation in medical device, biotech, digital health and educational innovation. In addition, the Council provides a sounding board to advise faculty about consulting, conflict of interest, industry relationships, resident involvement, intellectual property, industry sponsored research and other components of the innovation process.
