In 2012, the Medical Futures Lab offered Medicine in the Age of Networked Intelligence, a powerful 50,000 foot view of medicine and its radical disruption. The course was huge success and drew the attention of the social health community well beyond the confines of Rice University and the Texas Medical Center. I was thrilled to co-teach and co-create this course with my Medical Futures Lab co-founder, Dr. Kirsten Ostherr.
I’m now thrilled to announce that, through a novel collaboration between Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine, this course will be globally available in May 2015 through MOOC leader edX. Reshaped and formatted for professional online consumers, Medicine in the Digital Age will deliver a comprehensive overview of our rapidly evolving health care landscape. This rich, highly produced course will offer health professionals the opportunity to understand the facets of health care’s emerging digital space.
Medicine in the Digital Age is designed for leaders in healthcare and allied industries looking to integrate digital innovation in their organizations. Course participants who are looking to get up to speed on the transformations reshaping medicine today will uncover an exciting new world of opportunities. Social health mavens will find a unique opportunity to advance their thinking through high-level dialogue with a robust global community of innovators.
Look for an experience that leverages the EdX platform and delivers thoughtful assessments, engaging projects, and high touch interaction with instructors.
I’d love to see you onboard. Seats are limited so register today.
Medicine in the Digital Age is part of a new professional development product available through edX. You can read more about it in today’s Wall Street Journal.
