Data Sources Formal review of literature: EMRs in Medical Education (Gimbel, Stephens & Pangaro) Initial brainstorming session with key advisors Written input from Dr. Bob Williams, VADM Mike Cowan, Dr. Jim Smirniotopoulos, & CDR Stephen Sears Discussion with U of Arizona Medical School (Silverman) – school exposes medical students to 70 hours of medical informatics Program Requirements for Fellowship Education in the Subspecialty of Clinical Informatics; JAMIA 2009 Core Content for the Subspecialty of Clinical Informatics; JAMIA 2009 Clinical Informatics Board Certification: History, Current Status, and Predicted Impact on the Clinical Informatics Workforce; Appl Clin Inform 2009 Meeting with Clinical Clerkship Committee
Overall Questions What basic medical informatics concepts should be introduced to medical students? When and how should students be exposed to information retrieval strategies and technologies? When should the electronic health record be introduced to students? How? How much?
Strategy Anticipate current and future need for medical informatics & technology skills Identify the optimal exposure Partner with existing departments Phased-in approach (based on available resources) Much attention focused on early intervention to prepare learners for clinical experiences
Next Steps Complete formal literature review Compare data from across sources Develop draft planning document Task Force edits draft Submitted in final draft to the four primary curriculum committees + white paper to Services/MHS
