MEDITAC INTERNATIONAL LECTURE SERIES

MedITAC has developed a series of lectures for international collaborative distance learning. The following lectures are available for previewing. There will be weekly sessions held in which MedITAC will host a videoconference forum via H.323 format. The purpose of the forum will be to allow participants the opportunity to interact, to ask questions, and to discuss the lecture. This promises to be an excellent learning tool for physicians, residents, and medical students alike, and will construct the groundwork for future distant learning efforts.

TIME: Proposed time 7:30 am to 8:15 am Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5:00)
WHEN: Weekly
DURATION: Ongoing
WORKING AGENDA: The current presentation will be discussed. A technical evaluation of all interactions and records will be kept. Logged medical students will participate in debates and questions will be encouraged, structured, recorded, and evaluated. These clinical conferences will occur regularly and they will be captured on digitized tape. E-mail will be provided to all sites participating and those interested in participating on a weekly basis. This will include a schedule of upcoming events, news contributed by various sites, matters of common interest, etc.

Some presentations will require the RealMedia G2 player www.Real.com
