Dr. Liisa Bergmann

Liisa Bergmann, MD, MBA, along with her cohort team in the UW Executive MBA program, created a business plan as part of a capstone project for their Executing Strategy course. The project won the “most Innovative” project award in the Badger Sett competition. Her business plan was for a potential new product, a CPR training system called “ResusciDGi.” ResusciDGi is a CPR training system that combines the internet and a digitized manikin that feels more like a human, to allow for socially-distanced CPR training and certification. Her team’s project was voted to be the most innovative by her professor, a team of two judges, and her classmates. The invention has been disclosed to WARF, where it is now under consideration, while its team of creators is working on prototype development. Dr. Bergmann is a graduating MR fellow in the department.
