Academic Life in Emergency Medicine #meded Turning medical education inside out and upside down

6 Jul

Academic Life in Emergency Medicine: TED video: Turning medical education inside out and upside down.

Dr. Lawrence Sherman is an innovator in Continuing Medical Education. He is Senior Vice President of Educational Strategy for Prova Education, past member of the Board of Directors of the North American Association of Medical Education and Communications Companies (NAAMECC), and has served as an appointed member of the Professional Education Committee of the American Heart Association.

He talks about how we should build medical training that is patient-centered so that students would feel comfortable interacting with actual patients from day 1 of medical school training. The speaker is stylistically a bit over-the-top with his expressions and mannerism, but the ideas are novel and relevant in medical education.
