    “MedBiquitous Community Connection” is a series of free one-hour webinars featuring health professions educators and technology innovators from around the globe.

    Medical education and medical schools, as well as the other health professions, are reinventing themselves. The worlds of science, technology, and health care are evolving at lightning pace, rendering the 10-year lifecycle of a traditional one-size-fits-all medical school curriculum a relic. Our students are learning and collaborating in a fundamentally different way, with technology and a broader world of health professions education resources allowing them to pick-and-choose what and how they learn. These disruptive changes are all opportunities for us to adapt, have greater agility, better meet the needs of our students and communities, and rethink long-standing antiquated models.

    The skills, resources, and team necessary for a health professions school to thrive in 2022 are very different from what got us to this point. Strengths in artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, a robust data warehouse, using electronic health record data in the curriculum, asynchronous and remote instruction, and simulation technology are all quickly becoming the core of our responses to the disruptive forces. How do we get there? This presentation will give a perspective on the resources, structure, governance, and principles that a health professions school can use in 2022 to build innovation capacity and be growth-minded. We will discuss how to engage partners and stakeholders and how to drive real change and data-driven decision-making at your schools. The goal is to enable all of us to become a continuously learning system that consistently and constantly improves apace to the changing world around us.

    “MedBiquitous Community Connection” is a series of free one-hour webinars featuring health professions educators and technology innovators from around the globe.

    In September 2021, the MedBiquitous community put forth the white paper "MedBiquitous 2030: Building the Digital Ecosystem for Health Professions Education."The goals of publishing the white paper and starting the initiative are to help others discover the power that comes from developing an infrastructure that all our learners and clinicians can utilize. Members of the MedBiquitous community have come to appreciate the power of allowing systems to work together to make our lives easier as we train and educate health care providers. It is now time to bring the entire HPE community into the conversation.

    Join MedBiquitous Director, Johmarx Patton, as he provides further insights on the initiative and reactions from members of the community on how we might meet the challenges on transitioning health professions and health care delivery education to meet the digital frontier we are all facing.
