The MedBiquitous ThinkTank

The MedBiquitous Program recently launched its virtual community, MedBiquitous ThinkTank. This community space is for health professions educators and technology innovators to actively engage in the dialogue and consensus-driven process related to developing data standards for health professions education, competence assessment, and quality improvement. Aligned with the current offering of our themed webinar series, we hope this is also a valuable space to continue the conversation around presented content.

I’m currently a master’s student in the Health Informatics joint degree program at U-M’s School of Information. I’m really thrilled to be working with Johmarx and Jeff to support the mission of MedBiquitous and the AAMC this summer.
