Webinar: Preparing for the Future – Engaging Medical Students in Telemedicine
May 19, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
The Woodward Center will present a virtual workshop from third-year medical student Elizabeth Raoof on developing curricular outlines that engage medical students in the delivery of virtual health care. A persistent challenge in teaching telemedicine is finding avenues to directly engage students with patients, and too often students’ roles became primarily observational. Well-designed curricular outlines will not only enhance student-patient interactions, but also expand on students’ understanding of protecting patient health information and implications that telemedicine has on patient access to health care.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the importance of actively engaging medical students in the care of patients in virtual health appointments.
- Evaluate avenues to incorporate basic sciences and anatomy review through debriefing sessions with attending physicians, residents and medical students following telemedicine appointments.
- Develop a lesson plan designed to actively involve medical students in virtual health appointments that enable direct student-patient interactions.
