Medical Education

Incentives and rewards drive all medical education. Amazingly, less than 10% of medical students go to regular classes. They have learned to study for tests, using a repetition algorithm system that favors them on standarized testing. This works where classrooms do not because classrooms are one size fits all and attendance does not correlate with performance on skills tests.

We forget everything!

Physicians are great at acquiring knowledge. The problem is that up to 50% of this knowledge is lost within a year. To prevent that loss of memory space repetition strategies are key. How much are people learning, how much are they retaining and how much are they spending for the education? Quality of education is measured by the amount of knowledge retained.

The role of technology

The old algorithm is textbook and review books. Now the paradigm is a digital-based strategy of flash cards and podcasts, which are personalized and tied to a space-recognition algorithm. Reinforced education is put in context and paced to the learners unique educational journey. Wow, how times are changing quickly.
