Center for Medical Education in Digital Healthcare & Data Science
We aspire to impart trainees with foundational knowledge and skills in the research and application of technology to improve health.
The digital transformation of healthcare is accelerating with wearable sensors, telemedicine, interoperable health data and opportunities for personalized care guidance. The opportunities lie not only in the way we deliver care and treat disease, but also ultimately in the way we prevent disease. We need to enable the next generation of physicians to understand, interpret, apply and improve emerging technologies and data science in order to practice in and build our future healthcare system.
