MedEd Apps That Will Quench Your Thirst

Jan 2017 Workshop
Précis: When presented with an app overload, how does a busy medical educator know which apps will
help educate their students in the OB/GYN clerkship? This workshop will be an interactive
demonstration of expert-recommended apps and a small group breakout session focused on using apps
that engage millennial students.
Workshop Text: With a growing number of mobile applications (apps) related to the medical field, APP
OVERLOAD is much like trying to drink from a fire hose. This session will give participants the tools to
distinguish a mirage from an oasis in this digital medical education landscape. It will highlight available
apps that have been systematically vetted for quality in various educational settings, including
interactive didactics, on-the-fly teaching, exam prep and fingertip resources for medical students and all
lifelong learners.The workshop will begin with an introduction to apps, a discussion of the potential
dangers of inaccurate apps, and an education on choosing apps. During the session, participants will
download expert-recommended apps onto their own hand-held devices. A real-time demonstration
will give attendees an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the apps. Participants will then work
in small groups to brainstorm ways to use these apps in one or more educational settings. The
presenters will then flip the workshop back to the audience, who will have the opportunity to Share
Your Favorite App by syncing their own devices to provide a demo for the entire group. Attendees will
leave with a list of high quality apps to make sure they are never stranded in the digital desert again
