How Should Medical Education Prepare Doctors for the Networked Age?

I suspect that if you like Wing of Zock, you might like Millennial Medicine, a transformative meeting on the future of medical education taking place on April 26, 2013, in the Texas Medical Center. Rice University Professor Kirsten Ostherr and I have assembled some of medical education’s top thinkers and innovators to answer the question, “How should medical education look to prepare doctors for the networked age?”

Eight speakers. One day. Important questions.

Beyond what happens when brilliant people gather in one room, it’s our hope that Millennial Medicine will provoke a new kind of conversation about medical education and our future.

Check out our program and grab a seat while they’re still available. Follow the action on #MMed13.

Millennial Medicine is the work of the Medical Futures Lab, a collaboration of Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Texas Health Science Center.

Millennial Medicine is supported through a generous grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and the Rice University Humanities Research Center.
