Transforming the learning experience together
“There is no transformation of the healthcare delivery system without also transforming how we learn.”
WHAT: PAC and our MedEDge Lab are a collaborative design space. We work collectively to create the next generation of learning tools by providing design, development and mentorship resources. Our MedEDge lab provides multimedia and fabrication equipment, and our extended network from the Maker Lab at Cornell Tech to the School of Visual Arts provides a one of kind multidisciplinary approach to MedEd design.
HOW: Propose and develop your own project or join one of the ongoing projects below. Use our MedEd design space to address the challenges of knowledge translation in today’s learning environment. Our work has been applied to education curriculum from student to advanced clinician; from personal learning to department and institution patient safety and quality improvement.
WHO: Anyone with interest in MedED innovation are welcome including: students, residents, faculty, advanced practitioners, EMS, nursing and others. Please feel free to contact us.
