This is the most amazing time to be in medicine. Everything we understand about medicine and the care of patients is changing faster than we can keep up. And how we prepare the next generation of providers to meet these challenges is something deserving of real conversation.
Join us for Millennial Medicine: Knowledge Design for an Age of Digital Disruption on April 26, 2013 as we envision the future of medical education.
Millennial Medicine will be a unique, one day symposium that focuses on creative solutions to the grand challenges facing medical education today. Our goal for Millennial Medicine is to launch a new kind of conversation about what the future of medicine should be, and how we should get there. What needs to change in medical training so that future doctors will be prepared for the changes that are impacting medicine and other fields of higher education?
Held in the Bioscience Research Collaborative on the campus of Rice University, Millennial Medicine will be a venue for inspiring, creative, unorthodox thinkers to share their ideas and concrete strategies for making change happen.
With speakers from both inside and outside of medicine, Millennial Medicine will foster a dialogue that looks for the best educational strategies of the digital age, recognizing that the most profound insights may come from outside voices.
Our speakers include Eric Topol, Ann Balsamo, Jay Baruch, Yuri Milo, Louise Aronson, Mark Triola, and Alexa Miller.
