The new education center at Stanford can benefit learners all over the world.
Stanford seeks to improve global health by providing new online medical training programs for people of all skills.
From medical school and vice provost office cooperation, the center will be made by medical school, a former senior vice President of the medical education Charles directed by rob (Charles Prober), and through the digital training to promote health education.
“Because of Charles’s vision, the Stanford university medical school has gained an international reputation for creating innovative courses and blended learning experiences,” said Dr. Lloyd Minor, md, dean of medical school. “New health education center will be through with the office of the vice provost of strong cooperation, take advantage of this progress, help our world class teacher to the student far beyond boundaries to further understand our school campus.
The center will use the resources and expertise developed by the vice provost in the past five years, including instructional design, project development, and expert support for learners. The deputy provost’s office will be the center’s base. Prober will be the founding director and senior vice provost of the health education center in the office.
“Meaningful impact on human health”
“We are happy to serve medical and medical services in this way,” said John Mitchell, associate provost for teaching and learning. “An important part of our mission is to make Stanford’s expertise more extensive. This new center provides an opportunity to do so through meaningful impacts on human health.
John Mitchell, vice provost for teaching and learning, says part of his office’s mission is to make Stanford’s expertise more widely available.
Mitchell, said the center’s service scope could eventually free content from resource-poor country to developed economies charge certificate and degree programs, and will be used by private foundations and charities, tuition fees and, in some cases, sponsored research funding.
Prober notes that the spread of smart devices into the world’s most distant regions makes it possible to distribute health information widely and tailor its content to meet a wide range of audiences. Topics, such as nutrition education for medical students, patients, medical professionals continue to accept education of medicine or some of the poorest countries in the world of the rural community of individual citizens to provide customized service.
“Anything we create that has intrinsic value to health care should be reapplied to everyone, including health care in developing countries,” he said.
The center will be set up in the medical school and vice provost office, on the basis of existing projects, and expand with other organizations, including the United States and abroad academic institutions, government agencies and non-profit organizations of partnership.
The center will expand the international cooperation program on digital medicine education at Stanford university, aiming to improve health by creating high-quality, accessible content in developing countries. Digital MEDIC in India already has a strong influence, m.d., Ph.D., Sakti Srivastava, m.d., Ph.D., is the project and the project director, deputy director of the surgical with public and private medical institutions, non-profit organizations and government agencies to establish a partnership, so that health is even more widely available online and simulation resources.
Similarly, pediatric lecturer Maya Dr Adam is now expanding digital MEDIC project in South Africa, spread about nutrition, pregnancy, breast-feeding and HIV management digital teaching tools, community health workers and local women might not otherwise have access to this information.
Combine online interactive learning.
The new center will also promote courses that combine online and interactive learning. For example, students at Stanford university school of medicine can now learn biochemistry by watching short time video, and then participate in interactive class discussion materials. At one point, students who attended biochemistry lectures ranged from 20 percent to 30 percent (medical schools are unusual), and 95 percent of students now attend interactive courses. The medical school has been working with other medical schools to develop similar methods to teach other topics in microbiology and basic science.
Although the center will initially get content from medical school, but in the end will also include other staff at Stanford university, their work relating to health and health care, such as climate change, economics, psychology and an expert in international law.
“We invite other members of Stanford university who are interested in health to join this effort to help us make the most effective contribution to the health of the world,” said Mitchell.
