Episode 1: The World of Apps – Part 1
Technology has drastically changed how people learn. Apps provide easy access to accurate, validated, evidence-based information, as opposed to in days prior when you had to flip through books in an attempt to find it.
That prompted Dr. Teresa Chan, the associate dean of Continuing Professional Development at McMaster Faculty of Health Sciences and Dr. Monika Bilic, a first-year resident in Emergency Medicine also at McMaster to repurpose the open access Emergency Medicine education blog CanadiEM content and prototyped a handy app for medical students.
In this inaugural episode of Specialty Scoop, host Dr. Guylaine Lefebvre, the executive director of Membership Engagement and Programs at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada speaks to both doctors to understand the challenge and vision of their app, their thoughts on open access medical education movement, and how knowing your audience and finding the right crew is pivotal to creating an app.
