Digital Health: Changing Medical Schools Forever

Anatomy, physiology and introduction to clinical medicine, move over!

This year, medical futurist Bertalan Mesko, MD launches a new course, “Disruptive Technologies in Medicine” with Professor Maria Judit Molnar, the scientific Vice Rector of Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary. His goal is to prepare medical students for those future technologies they will face by the time they start actually practicing medicine. Dr. Mesko wants to persuade them that the relation between the human touch and technologies can work together to advance clinical science and care.

The curriculum  touches on many of the “digital health hot buttons” found in the conversations of today–and, if Mesko has his way, these topics will find their way to the conversations at bedside too.

  • How Exponential and Disruptive Technologies Shape The Future of Medicine
  • Personalized Medicine – Genomic Health
  • Point of Care Diagnostics
  • The Future of Medical Imaging
  • Social Media in Medicine
  • Harnessing Big Data in Healthcare
  • Biotechnology and Gene Therapy
  • Mobile Health and Telemedicine
  • Regenerative Medicine, Optogenetics and 3D Printing
  • Medical Robotics, Bionics, Virtual Reality, and Future of Medical Technologies

International students will access materials online as well.  They will learn and compete against each other by answering questions about the future of medicine using the course social media page on Facebook. Further, new global collaborations with the students in digital health medical classes will be fostered,  including courses by Kim Solez, Professor of Anatomical Physiology  at the University of Alberta.  More collaborations are planned.

The role of digital health is taking root.  From investments by Google, Apple and other large voices in the marketplace to a true global presence, it’s only a matter of time until medical education catches up with this powerful trend.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
