The Medical Futures Lab has been humming with activity in the last weeks leading up to our inaugural symposium. Response to the program has been tremendous. In addition to our incredible lineup of speakers, we have participants coming from all over the United States and beyond, and all of the major players in the Texas Medical Center will be in the house. In the afternoon we will hear from physicians, creative writers, artists, hacktivists, and open-source educators as we reimagine medical education for the doctor of the future. (See the previous blog post for details on the morning panel.) Some titles to pique your interest:
“Story-centric: Curiosity, A Glass of Water, and Other Creative Tools for Future Doctors” (Jay Baruch)
“The Art Practicum: Clinical Skills for the Digital Age” (Alexa Miller)
“Hacking Medical Education” (Fred Trotter)
“Open Source Medicine” (Rich Baraniuk)
“Public Medical Communication: A New Core Competency for 21st Century Health Professionals” (Louise Aronson)
We’ll wrap up the day with a reception in the lovely courtyard of the BioScience Research Collaborative. We hope to see you there!
