TOP REVIEWS FROM HEALTH CARE INNOVATION
Weeks 1 and 3 were really interesting and the instructors were very informative. For the other 2 weeks, the topics and instructors were not as interesting. But overall was a pretty informative course.
I found the course helpful overall, I found the 3rd module to be the most difficult and hard to follow and felt there was a lot of information without real world examples.
Great course for understanding behavioral economics!
Great frameworks and solid content. A good course as part of a broader foundation.
