The Road to MedBiquitous - June 9

Marc Triola: Keynote 

Medical education is in the midst of a transformation, one that has been fueled by new models of educational programs such as competency-based accelerated tracks, greater use of technology in every aspect of teaching and assessment, and the growing use of data and analytics to drive educational decision-making. Medical education is rapidly becoming a sophisticated ‘continuously learning’ system that consistently and constantly improves. In parallel, our academic medical centers have made dramatic changes in response to the current pandemic that have created opportunities and posed challenges to education programs.  The emergency response is highlighting emerging future skills for graduates: practicing telemedicine, health systems science and systems-thinking, and contributing to rapid and agile translational research. This webinar will discuss the recent changes and what our shared future of medical education will potentially look like, as well as what skills and capacities we as medical schools should develop to thrive.

Johmarx Patton: Overview 

The amount of data that we collect about our education and training programs continues to grow exponentially. We have data needs for accreditation, certification, teaching activities & learning content, as well as quality improvement efforts. MedBiquitous is a long-standing data standards program that has a vast community of contributors that want to help solve these health professions education and credentialing data challenges at scale. Please join this webinar as we discuss plans for the future of the program, including the launch of our new participation model. 

"MedBiquitous Community Connection" is a series of free one-hour webinars featuring health professions educators and technology innovators from around the globe. "MedBiquitous Community Connection" provides a forum for community experts to share how digital technologies are promoting improvement and better outcomes across the continuum of health professions education. A portion of each webinar will reserve time for a brief Q&A session, allowing attendees the opportunity to dialogue with guest speakers.

The virtual community, MedBiquitous ThinkTank, will be an active discussion space following each MedBiquitous Community Connection webinar. Your confirmation email will provide details on how to join.
