Internet in Medicine University Course: A New Semester

September 25, 2011

It’s a real pleasure to announce that the new semester of the Internet in Medicine course which I just presented at the Stanford Summit 2011 will launch this Wednesday (28th of September)  with 140 registered students. In the first week’s lecture, I’ll give a detailed introduction to web 2.0/social media and highlight potential applications and solutions in medicine and healthcare through a Prezi.com slideshow.

  • Time: 28th of September, 17:00
  • Location: Lecture Hall of the Department of Pediatrics, University of Debrecen

The materials and some of the slideshows will be posted on Med20course.com throughout the whole semester. I’m very excited about that and also about the changes I made to the course structure based on the feedback I received from last semester’s students.

We will go through the basics of social media, medical blogging, microblogging, RSS, virtual worlds and many more relevant topics.

2010 Autumn Semester: Over

December 20, 2010

I believe that this is still the first and only university accredited course in the world that focuses on social media and medicine for medical, dentistry, pharmacy and public health students. This semester is just over after 10 weeks, 20 slideshows and hundreds of questions from the students. They also filled in surveys before and after the course. I plan to publish the results in a peer-reviewed journal early next year.

Thank you for the participation and the comments, questions, I hope you (both in the course and through the blog) enjoyed the lectures.

See you next February when the new semester will be launched.

Internet in Medicine Elective Course: Summary

September 7, 2010

I launched the world’s first university elective course focusing on internet and medicine for medical, dentistry and pharmacy students in 2008 and now the 4th semester is just over and I thought I would share the material again. Over 130 students, 10 weeks, 20 slideshows. I tried to cover all the important topics in this area.

What I’m most proud of in this semester is that E-Patient Dave sent a personal video message to my students about being an e-patient and what kind of doctors they should become.

Students filled a questionnaire before and after the course and I plan to publish the results in an open access journal during the summer.

See you this September in the next semester with new materials, Prezi.com slideshows and more.

Medicine and Web 2.0 University Course: End of 3rd Semester

December 15, 2009

I’m really proud that I can organize and run the world’s first university credit course focusing on Web 2.0 and medicine at a medical school. This was the third, and so far most successful, semester with 115 students who filled a survey before and after the course. I hope I can publish the results in a peer-reviewed paper soon with the help of real experts in this field.

In the final lecture, I used Prezi.com again and talked about the future of medicine as well as the results of the surveys. I’ve already got some invitations to do at least a part of the course at other international universities. What is sure is that the next semester will launch in February in Debrecen with assignments and tests because I would like to engage students even more. See you there!

To be honest, I’m very proud of this university course (this is the first of its kind that is launched at a medical school) and now I’m ready to launch the 3rd semester. The new semester will be centered around a new structure (see below) and a new form of slideshows (Prezi.com). And I’m happy to announce that the whole course will get a brand new website in January where I will publish the content and other details as well.
