Description

An important aspect of education in medicine is connecting concepts from the first year of medical school to the clinical practice of medicine and vice versa. Introductory basic science courses tend to lack clinical encounters that medical students are eager to experience. In the clinical years learning takes place on the fly as information is often accrued in a piecemeal fashion. This dynamic learning environment may be more stimulating than sitting in a classroom; however, it can be challenging to organize and navigate the information. Map for Medical Education is a concept learning and teaching platform that visually connects this knowledge. It is a personal digital notebook that grows with the learner and allows for easy navigation between the basic and clinical sciences.

This presentation is for anyone interested in how to best organize medical education either from the learning, teaching, or course administrating perspective. It is a concept designed and developed by two medical students who are currently in residency. We are passionate about developing this digital platform that would allow a physician to quickly and easily browse their own annotated notes instead of searching the internet.
