IT Engagement in the Future of Medical Education

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

Abstract

This ECAR research bulletin focuses on how the latest wave of information technology advances is shaping the future of medical education to achieve the reform objectives outlined by the Association of American Medical Colleges and others. It details how Thomas Jefferson University, a leading academic medical center, along with other institutions is embarking on a new course to educate medical students. The new course is driven in large part by emerging developments in technology. Based on the pace and intensity of IT adoption in medical education, this bulletin also discusses key implications for reshaping other fields of undergraduate and graduate education.
