Robert Wood Johnson Foundation #RWJF1stFri series

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Friday Oct 3, 2014 12:00 pm to 01:00 pm EDT
United States

Please join the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) on October 3 from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. ET for a First Friday Google+ Hangout. Panelists will discuss a new approach to medical education in which much basic content is delivered online, thus freeing up classroom time for more interactive sessions and learning what really “sticks” with students. Susan Dentzer, senior policy adviser to the Foundation, will lead a discussion with innovators at Stanford University; Khan Academy; and MCAT learning app, Osmosis; sharing visions for the present and future of medical education that better serves emerging physicians and patients. 

This event is the ninth in the #RWJF1stFri series – a platform to inform RWJF audiences about lessons our partners are learning as we all work to create a Culture of Health.
