Innovation is the creation of new value.

CHIP provides a clinically relevant educational experience for all health professionals: those who wish to become innovators, those who want to support innovation work, and those who simply want to learn more about this topic.

CHIP is entirely online. It can take six months to complete the program however practicing healthcare professionals and medical residents may extend this to twelve months if needed. To complete the program, participants must attend five two-hour workshops, five self-assessments, one quarterly networking opportunity, and two reflections for discussion at quarterly meetings with a health innovation coach.

CHIP is open to clinicians and medical residents from all institutions. A set number of seats is reserved for McMaster University participants.
