Gutenberg war gestern: Ein Beitrag zur Ausbildung in der Medizin gestern, heute und morgen


Burg, G; French, L E (2012). Gutenberg war gestern: Ein Beitrag zur Ausbildung in der Medizin gestern, heute und morgen. Der Hautarzt, 63 Suppl:38-44.

Abstract

Education is the basis for reliable medical care and medical progress. Our medical knowledge has increased more in the past 50 years than in the 500 years before. The spatial and human resource capacity of our universities cannot cope with the existing academic structures and needs. Part of the problem can be solved by "blended learning", that is a combination of traditional teaching methods (frontal lectures, courses, bedside teaching) with supplementary web-based e-learning. In addition to conveying a sound basic knowledge, the ability to cope with modern media and prepare for lifelong learning must also be taught. Out of the large number of e-learning platforms for undergraduate students offered in the internet, we present the program DOIT (Dermatology Online with Interactive Technology; http://www.swisdom.org) and the program Dermokrates (http://www.Dermokrates.com) of the German, Austrian and Swiss Dermatological Societies for postgraduate Continuing Medical Education (CME). The biggest obstacle in the implementation of new developments is the stubborn adherence to traditional structures.
