Sir William Osler is known by most of the medical community as the “Father of American Medicine”, famous for so many of his outstanding contributions to the advancement of medicine in the 20th century and thereafter. He is renowned for the books and articles he wrote and the teaching practices he instituted that educated generations of students during medical school along with physicians during their years of practice.
I am extremely excited on several levels about creating this new company, CaseNetwork that will help shape a brighter future for medical education. AS A PHYSICIAN, I understand that most physicians are too busy and it is difficult for them to leave their practices to go to live educational programs. But I also understand that physicians have a need and desire to stay as current as possible in their field, so they can provide the best possible care for their patients.
What is intelligence? How do people best learn? How do people process and apply knowledge? Can technology enhance education? Over the last 20 years in my roles as a physician, educator, researcher and CEO, I have tried to answer these questions and apply innovative techniques and solutions to improve medical education.
