There is a critical deficit in the number of health professionals being trained worldwide. As a result, billions of people do not have access to adequate healthcare and there are tremendous disparities in rates of avoidable disability and death.
The traditional approach to medical education is insufficient to address the current, pressing, and growing knowledge gaps and educational inequities. The problem is exacerbated in under-resourced areas, where healthcare professionals available to teach, and educational resources necessary to facilitate high-quality training, are in short supply.
We seek to address the gaps in global medical education by leveraging the expertise of Stanford faculty by creating digital modular medical education curricula that can be localized to meet the needs of the learning contexts.
We work directly with medical education institutions to identify curricular gaps and provide access to digital content created at Stanford, such as our Anatomy of the Upper Limb, Emergency Medicine, and Microbiology courses. We also work with institutions to identify viable digital platforms for disseminating content.
We have piloted sharing supplementary medical education content across a number of institutions and are working with faculty at collaborating institutions and at Stanford to better identify the ways in which content can be localized to meet medical students’ learning needs.
