February 23, 2011 (Toronto, ON) – Better preparing medical students to practice in modern, technology-enabled, clinical environments is the aim of a new initiative launched today by the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) and Canada Health Infoway (Infoway). Canada’s medical schools, students, and residents are invited to join in this three-year effort to strengthen learning on effective clinical use of information and communications technologies (ICT).
“In Canada and around the world, clinicians are improving quality of care, access, and productivity through the use of information and communications technologies,” said Jennifer Zelmer, Senior Vice-President, Clinical Adoption, and Innovation Canada Health Infoway. “By giving clinicians in training a good foundation on the effective use of these tools in clinical practice, physicians of tomorrow can better harness these benefits in their practices and for their patients.”
