Developing Free, Open, Online Education Resources
This project explores the possibilities of a robust, complete and entirely free online medical education resource. The effort is attempting to build medical education content for the Khan Academy online site as rapidly as possible. To do that, it is looking for numerous collaboration opportunities both with existing groups, like AAMC and Stanford Medical School, as well as emerging leaders and teachers, like students and new health professionals. Our sense is that a free, open, online education resource will have profound and disruptive impact with wide-ranging implications on existing teaching approaches in medical schools and more broadly in health care education across disciplines,” says Mike Painter, RWJF senior program officer.
