David Rosenman is a hospital-based physician at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He serves as an international consultant in the design and operation of hospitals, and hospital systems. At the Mayo Medical School, David’s pride and joy is the Preclinical Block, a six-week, multidisciplinary transition from the classroom to the real world. The course takes place exactly in the middle of the four-year medical school curriculum. It covers many topics — from the fundamentals of clinical medicine and health-related counseling, to system dynamics, creativity, digital health, “omics,” fruits, vegetables, and love. David has won many teaching awards including, more than once, Teacher of the Year at Mayo Medical School. He designed and led the collaborative creation of Transform, Mayo Clinic’s iconic international symposium on innovation and healthcare. He also advises a number of innovation-related start-ups. David completed a clinical fellowship in Hospital Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic, and residency training in Internal Medicine at the Indiana University Medical Center. He holds an MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT Sloan Fellow in Innovation and Global Leadership), an MA in Biology from Ball State University, an MS in Biomedical Science/Clinical Research from the Mayo Graduate School, and a BA in Communication from the University of Pennsylvania. He loves to doodle and always has with him a notebook for this purpose.
