Keywords:medical education, e-learning, global education, pediatrics, internet-based learning, adult learners, critical care medicine, OPENPediatrics
The traditional methods of education, while once revolutionary, are failing to keep pace in the 21st Century. OPENPediatricsTM has created an interactive, virtual training and knowledge exchange platform to enhance the quality of pediatric critical care. It revolutionizes the existing post-graduate medical education model. Designed by experienced physicians at Boston Children's Hospital, in collaboration with IBM Interactive, it offers asynchronous interactive learning and various avenues for knowledge sharing outside the walls of individual institutions. It is creating a digital, global community, based on adult learning principles, provided at no cost to the user.
