The Educational IT summer student program is funded by the Office of Integrated Medical Education at the University of Toronto. It aims at providing students with the opportunity to put their design and development skills into practice by working with content experts to develop medical educational modules and websites.
Once a year, we team up with the Department of Biomedical Communications (BMC) at the Institute of Medical Sciences to help coordinate and recruit BMC students to participate in the summer program.
- Combine the faculty content experts and the medical/graduate students at University of Toronto who have technical know-how to develop the next-generation medical educational modules and websites.
- Foster a community of faculty members and students who will lead the future of medical educational software development at the Faculty of Medicine.
- Provide a framework of educational software design and evaluation through a series of weekly seminars during the summer program.
- Provide a portal for the Faculty of Medicine website to feature the educational software projects and make them available online for use by the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, as well as by other medical schools around the world.
