Presentation Transcript

  1. Medical Education and the Lambda Grid Parvati Dev, PhD Stanford University SUMMIT Lab

  2. Overview • Problems faced by medical education • Technology as one solution • Where is networking going in medical education • Advanced Distributed Learning

  3. Exponential growth of medical knowledge • MD degree still 4 years • One year internship • 2-5 years specialization • Maybe a fellowship

  4. Some specialties disappearing

  5. Audio • Mobile phone • Music Visual • Television • Web lecture Interaction • Web surfing • Instant messaging Students are multichannel, multitasking

  6. Overview • Problems faced by medical education • Technology as one solution • Where is networking going in medical education

  7. Why technology ? • Practice See one, do one, teach one Precertified on procedure • Virtual hospital Simulations • Content Books, Lectures CDs, Internet, Databases

  8. Some technologies Rich media and video with “presence” “Feeling” at a distance - haptics Simulation of medical situations Games and multiplayer gaming

  9. Rich mediaandvisualization Networked resources Worldwide Visualizable, palpable Anatomy to molecules

  10. Video for remote learning • Collaboration - Net Meeting

  11. Access Grid Video for remote learning

  12. Video for remote learning • Yesterday’s video from Keio University

  13. Haptic imagery - “feeling” virtual objects At a distance Low latency Transmit force, field, model

  14. Immersive simulation based learning ? • Used when training in the real situation is • Unsafe • Too Expensive • Inefficient • Non-standardized • Unavailable elsewhere

  15. Team based learning - with manikin • Patient under anesthesia lapses into cardiac arrest

  16. Virtual Emergency Room Multiple users (players) One 3D space

  17. Overview • Problems faced by medical education • Technology as one solution • Where is networking going in medical education

  18. Networking and medical education • Next Generation Internet • Supported the applications above • Gigabit, QoS, multicast • Scalable Information Infrastructure • Applications adapt to network “weather” • Grid computing and grid storage • Lambda grids • “Infinite” bandwidth • Ready to move to this level

  19. Requirements for education • Must support collaboration • via IP? • Across lambdas? • Multicast??? • Allow application level query of network parameters • Allow application to adapt if necessary • Must be easily supported on campus

  20. Global lambda What is wrong with this picture?

  21. Global Medical Education • Public health information needs worldwide network - SARS epidemic • Similarly, medical education needs a global view: • Global Development Learning Network (GDLN - World Bank) • MedNET (India)

  22. MedNET India Broadband network Link medical schools, hospitals, public health centers For Tele-education Telehealth Bio-informatics Research Grid

  23. MedNET India Supercomputing in India Internet2 Research Channel Fiber donor IEEAF Health sciences

  24. In conclusion Medical education is a fertile area for grid computing and lambda grid applications
