The Digital Revolution - What it Means for the Doctor of the Future

This week  more than 20 local and global thought leaders got together at UQ to discuss digital health and the impacts for how we train our medical students. 

The working session included thought provoking presentations from key thought leaders including: Associate Professor Clair Sullivan, Chief Digital Health Officer, Metro North HHS; Dr Todd Burstain, Chief Information Officer at Ochsner Health System (US) and Dr Carrie Hillyard, Director, Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering and Chairman, Fitgenes Australia Ltd.

The group then shared insights and ideas in terms of how we can best equip our medical students to embrace the future that will see rapid change and transformation in relation to digital health technology. 

There are plans to have further discussions on how to incorporate digital literacy and skills into the new curriculum.  Email the project team here if you would like to be involved in future working sessions.
