Medical education is undergoing a transformation causing significant challenges to teaching programs and educators. Healthcare reform, advances in technology, shorter work hours, and the unprecedented volume of information and critical knowledge students and providers must learn and apply all impact the educational process. Changes to the traditional configuration of how we teach students and practioners to insure proficiency are being widely debated.
We are developing an innovative case-based curriculum for family practice residents (CoreCases) that focuses on teaching the necessary competencies and related milestones. Information and knowledge is easily presented using a wide array of multi-media supporting retention .The program can be accessed via any mobile device to allow programs the flexibility to modify their existing curriculum. The process encourages interactive discussion rather than a lecture format and fosters critical conversation between faculty and student.
