Technology is changing many aspects of life and work, as well as the way Yale School of Medicine (YSM) students learn.
“For alumni and students, you know that the Yale System is the core of medical education at Yale. But today we have creative and novel technologies that enable that system in new ways,” said Nancy J. Brown, MD, Jean and David W. Wallace Dean and C.N.H. Long Professor of Internal Medicine, as she welcomed YSM alumni, students, faculty, and staff to the inaugural webinar, Reimagining Medical Education: Using Technology to Educate, Innovate, and Captivate, in the school’s Innovation in Medical Education series.
The four-part series that began on November 4 is designed to showcase “how that innovation enhances our already unique education,” Brown explained. The next session, on January 26, will focus on how simulation is used in medical education at YSM, followed by discussions of the adoption of telehealth in YSM’s clinical skills program and how innovation is being incorporated into the school’s pharmacology training.
