Telehealth is a rapidly expanding technologies that have been adopted by medical professionals as a new means of delivering care. However, many medical schools haven't trained their students in how to conduct these visits. There is also a lack of awareness in how this technology is used within different subspecialties.
I teach a course for medical students that aims to provide a foundational understanding of the current practice of telemedicine and telemedical devices across multiple sub-specialties. It gives instruction on the practical application of how to complete telemedicine consultation in the outpatient and emergent care settings.
Through this curriculum, we hope to equip our students with an operational skill set that will better prepare them to enter the evolving world of telemedicine. As part of this course, students complete the NRTRC's Telehealth 101 Course. I feel that this is a great foundational overview of telehealth.
We have received great feedback from students regarding the content in this module, and I would highly recommend this module to individuals hoping to gain a well-rounded overview of telehealth.
