Distribued medical education building our future together 2007 medical education conference

To be good is noble. To tell others how to be good is even nobler and a lot less trouble.

Mark Twain


Distribued medical education building our future together 2007 medical education conference

The rules break like a thermometer . . .

Quicksilver spills across charted systems.

We’re out in a country that has no language, no laws

Chasing the raven and the wren

through gorges unexplored since dawn.

Whatever we do together is pure invention.

The maps they gave us were out of date

by years.

Adrienne Rich, Twenty-one Love Poems

  • Setting the Context

  • Today’s Canadians

  • Citizens’ Expectations regarding Health

Distributed medical education

DISTRIBUTED MEDICAL EDUCATION

  • Diverse definitions and broad range of activities

  • Undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing medical education

  • Educational events and activities involving learners and teachers who are outside immediate classroom or clinical site

  • Partner and satellite campuses = ambulatory facilities, community-based facilities, regional hospital facilities, online learning sites, videoconferencing, separate university campuses

  • Short and long-distance travel

Distributed

“DISTRIBUTED”

Distributed computing is a method of computer processing in which different parts of a program run simultaneously on two or more computers that are communicating with each other over a network (not parallel but integrated processes). Main goal: to connect users and resources in a transparent, open and scalable way.
