Revolutionizing Med Education to Transform Health
Sunday, March 13
12:30PM - 1:30PM
110 E 2nd St
Technology, discovery and innovation have transformed health and the health care system, but the practice of training doctors has resisted change for decades. Now, institutions and new medical schools are challenging long-held paradigms about how to educate physicians. Classrooms and pedagogies are being redesigned, students are getting into the community, and technology, teamwork and patient-centeredness are taking precedence. Experts on the front lines of this revolution will discuss how medical schools are changing, what this means for students, educators, patients and the community, and how technology and innovation will help create physician lead in the evolving education landscape.
